Data Repository

Data Repository

Working with the National Opinion Research Center, VCP is implementing a data repository that will enable Network-wide analytics, process improvement, and efficiencies.

Vermont Care Partners is working with network agencies and the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago (www.NORC.ORG) to build a HIPAA and 42CFR compliant data repository that will support the transition into an integrated model of care delivery and a value based payment model. The repository aims to:

  • Facilitate connectivity from our members to the State, the Vermont Health Information Exchange and other sectors of the health care community.
  • Develop a standardized system for collecting data and performing reporting and analytics for member agencies, to improve care quality, and support the health care triple aim.
  • Gain efficiency by having a single point of contact for data requests related to our members’ data that resides in the repository.
  • Support coordination and collaboration among our member agencies.

Data Governance

VCP has established a Data Governance Advisory Committee comprised of representatives from many of our network agencies. The purpose of the Data Governance Advisory Committee is to create policy and procedures that will manage the data repository including, but not limited to:

  • Designing, building and functioning of the repository
  • Manage security and regulatory compliance for the repository and participating members
  • Manage and maintain member policies and procedures that support data integrity system wide
  • Create, manage, and maintain data analytics and interfaces to support member goals

Grant Support

The Data Quality and Data Repository initiatives are supported with grants received through the Vermont Health Care Innovation Project (VHCIP) and HHS Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Office of Rural Health Policy. The HRSA grant supports about 20% of this work. The VHCIP grant provides support to contract with the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) to develop the repository.
