Analytics Ready Data Sets are pre-staged tables optimized for reporting and analytics
They are curated based on the needs of different groups or Distributed Analytics Team in UCLA Health: Clinical, Financial, Operational, etc. They provide data elements to support the various needs of these DATs.
- Data elements needed to calculate measures and solve use cases for provider performance, patient access, and clinic throughput
- Data elements needed to report on Quality measures
- Data elements needed to report on eligibility of care, claims, and payments (Professional and Hospital billing)
Users are able to explore these data sets quickly and easier because they have user-friendly column names and simplified data models.
The Office of Health Informatics & Analytics (OHIA) has curated many Analytics Read Data Sets, some of which are described below.
To request access to these Data Sets, please visit the CART page.
These data sets are being enhanced continually. If you have specific enhancement requests, e.g. adding more data elements, please send us a request via the Data Dictionary Dashboard in Collibra. Click on the yellow button to the bottom left shown below.
