Future Improvements

Based on discussions with users, we have listed some of the more frequent suggestions for ways that the NDW can be enhanced:

  • More detailed encounter data (e.g., labs, meds, measurements, patient education)
  • New types of patient-related clinical data (problem list, surgical history, allergies)
  • Data from additional sources (e.g., Vital Statistics, CMS, Renal Network)
  • Clarification of current and addition of new types of data (claims, purchase orders, community, geographic locations, employee)
  • Better unduplication of related data from more than one source
  • Archiving system
