|Clinical Reporting System (CRS)|
Urban GPRA ReportingBACKGROUND
Health care facilities operated and run by the Urban Indian Health Program are now required to report their Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) clinical performance measures to IHS and Congress. This is required of both Urban facilities using the Resource and Patient Management System (RPMS) and facilities not using RPMS. RPMS users must use the Clinical Reporting System (CRS) for reporting, and non-RPMS users must decide whether to use electronic and/or manual reporting methods for reporting and must ensure they use performance measure logic that corresponds with the CRS logic. With either method, information that is reported must include a data supported audit trail that can be verified and validated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
GPRA clinical measures are reported in the Prevention and Treatment categories, and some of these measures are listed below.
The GPRA report year runs July 1 through June 30 of each year and GPRA reports are due every quarter except 1st quarter. Reports are cumulative; each quarterly report contains data from July 1st of the GPRA reporting year.
