We believe that the electronic medication documentation data in electronic health records from nurses is a potential source of signals for analytics. However, there exists a lack of research that investigates these specific data sets in a rigorous manner.This study applies an evidence-based data quality framework to nurses’ medication administration data to assess the quality for reuse in future analytics.

Describe the new knowledge and additional skills the participant will gain after attending your presentation.: Participants will learn about possible threats to data quality in nursing medicaiton administration data that may bias analysis.
