Collecting and Analyzing Data from the Evidence-Based Telehealth Network Grant Program Grantees Using the Revised Tele-Emergency Performance Assessment Report Tool
The primary purpose of this project was to collect and analyze data using the revised Tele-Emergency Performance Assessment Reporting Tool (T-PART) from the six Evidence-Based Telehealth Network Grant Program (EB TNGP) grantees on all their tele-emergency department (tele-ED) cases and a matched sample of non-tele-ED cases to conduct comparative effectiveness analysis to help establish the evidence base for tele-ED. EB TNGP grantees and their rural hospital partners were expected to use the T-PART to collect and edit the defined visit-level data elements, and to export and submit on a periodic basis, a de-identified patient-level data file to our Rural Telehealth Research Center for analysis. Data monitoring and management activities included:
- Overseeing the progress of the data collection process.
- Quality control measures to identify specific areas for improvement.
- Identifying root causes of any problems.
- Taking steps to correct processes and reduce or eliminate problems.
