To make certain that it meets the requirements of the new state law and that its performance measures are accurate, Health Care Services should do the following: correct the erroneous data currently in its data warehouse and fix its process for transferring data from its mainframe to its data warehouse.
DHCS has remedied this anomaly and corrected all erroneous data in its data warehouse.
Health Care Services provided documentation demonstrating that it had identified the cause of the erroneous data in its data warehouse, corrected its process for transferring data from its mainframe to its data warehouse, and tested the corrected process. Further, the documentation shows that the erroneous data in its data warehouse have been corrected.
DHCS has implemented the correction of erroneous data being submitted to the data warehouse. However, DHCS is continuing to work towards correcting erroneous data in the data warehouse retrospectively. DHCS anticipates completing the retrospective corrections by March 1, 2015.
