About the Training
The most comprehensive UDS training is the in-person training. It is a full-day program designed for people of all levels of prior UDS experience and covers all aspects of the 2019 UDS Report. The training addresses each of the report’s tables and provides an implementation-based explanation of how to successfully complete the UDS Report and how to avoid and resolve potential reporting issues. In addition to receiving UDS reporting instructions, attendees will understand the value of the UDS for health center operations and to the health center program and receive tips to help facilitate a successful submission.

Effective reporting of a complete and accurate UDS report is predicated upon an understanding of the inter-relatedness of the data elements and tables. Thus, the face-to-face training is a great way for new staff to improve their understanding of their role in the UDS reporting effort. As the in-person training is designed as an all-levels program, all financial, clinical, and administrative staff are welcome to attend in order to hone their reporting skills and share their experience with their peers.

Submission and Data Review Process Deadlines and Dates
Health Center Program awardees, look-alikes, and certain health centers funded under the HRSA’s Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW) are all required to submit their annual UDS Report by February 15, 2020.

After submission, clinics will then work with their UDS reviewer to correct identified data errors and/or explain apparent anomalies, so that the UDS reports may be finalized by March 31st. It is critical to complete this process during the limited window available. Once finalized, the system will not permit further corrections or amendments.
