Collibra DQ User Guide

Healthcare Data Quality

OwlDQ connects all members of the healthcare continuum with trustworthy, timely, and meaningful patient data, while reducing the time, expense, and effort required by 70%
We've moved! To improve customer experience, the Collibra Data Quality User Guide has moved to the Collibra Documentation Center as part of the Collibra Data Quality 2022.11 release. To ensure a seamless transition, will remain accessible, but the DQ User Guide is now maintained exclusively in the Documentation Center.
Poor data quality in healthcare is the leading problem that maligns patient outcomes. Hospitals and health information exchanges (HIEs) still struggle with patient matching issues, with most citing data quality problems and poor algorithms as top barriers to patient matching. Correctly linking patient data across organizations is a key element of value-based care, patient safety, and care coordination. Duplicate or mismatched records can result in privacy risks, claim denials, redundant medical tests or procedures, and reporting errors.
The lack of accurate and reliable DQ in healthcare leads to dire consequences that are completely preventable, as shown in OwlDQ's troponin example below. Complete and accurate data is a vital component of our complex health system, and anything less is an unacceptable risk. OwlDQ provides the predictable data quality that healthcare organizations need to deliver high-quality care that we all strive to achieve.
