AQuIN PHCs utilize two data warehouse and analytics platform: Azara Healthcare’s DRVS, is used by 13 of the PHCs; and, three PHCs that employ the Alaska Tribal Health System’s Cerner EHR use the Health Catalyst platform. The data warehouses are query-able by APCA and PHCs Ð they return each PHC’s data in the form of reports, registries, and clinical and operational outcome data for quality improvement and population health management purposes. The overall purpose of AQuIN is quality improvement for better health outcomes, increased patient and family engagement, increased provider experience, and lower costs. APCA staff assist PHCs in using data to drive quality improvement.
