Data can be uploaded to the platform via batch delivery.
This appendix describes the batch data delivery process and aims to provide tools for setting up and uploading a batch file successfully. This document is relevant for: healthcare professionals, data managers, quality control consultants and clinical informaticians.
Why batch delivery?
The goal of batch delivery is to extract and reuse as much data as possible from available information systems at the organization, like an electronic medical record. By reusing data, the administrative workload of healthcare professionals can be minimized. A batch is a collection of data derived from an information system put together in one file. The data dictionary defines for each standard set which data must be collected and uploaded.
