Allen Juris is the Assistant Director for Data Services, Clinical Data and Informatics (CDI) at the University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC). I have been with UHC since June 1990. In this role I am responsible for the automated patient data production system at UHC. I work closely with UHC members and the clinical experts at UHC to ensure the integrity of the data feeds and the application of the risk adjustment models and algorithms of the UHC Clinical Data Products. I also assist members with extracting data from their various systems and interpreting their data quality reports. He also maintains the documentation of file specifications and editing algorithms.
Prior to UHC, I was the data management specialist at the Renal Network of Illinois. I was solely responsible for management of a federally mandated patient tracking system of End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patients receiving dialysis and/or transplants in the state of Illinois. I generated monthly reports of patient activity for transmission to the federal government. Additionally, I maintained the patient database that was used for quality assurance of patient care by the organization and participated on the governing council.
