Available Data and MPI

Administrative data include billing codes, demographics, insurance status and similar information used for health care administration.

Clinical data include structured and unstructured data collected as part of routine care, but not necessarily used for administration (though these data may support administrative functions such as billing). Examples of clinical data include laboratory studies, medications, problems and clinical notes.

The set of administrative, clinical, and dental school records are linked by our enterprise Master Patient Index (eMPI).

GECBI (formerly IDX) contains Houston area administrative data.

Clinical data is composed of information from UT Physician's outpatient practice (currently Epic and previously Allscripts EHR), which are a subset of patients in the administrative set.

UTHealth School of Dentistry's billing and imaging data are provided by axiUm.



Deduplication

To facilitate research across multiple data sources, we've implemented an eMPI (enterprise Master Patient Index) to give every patient a unique ID distinct from their local MRN.

This allows us to consolidate records of patients who may have been seen in different settings. It also identifies duplicate patient records, improving quality for clinicians. An MPI can prevent duplicate patient records by linking those with identical or nearly identical demographic data. This ensures a high quality of care.

The MPI database is updated nightly.


Total Number of Patients with Clinical Data

Minimum number of COVID-19 cases
in the UT Physicians patient population

By looking for specific order types and test results, we can set a lower bound on the number of persons seeing a UTPhysicians provider who have tested positive for COVID-19.

  • Dates reflect the date a test was ordered. "Tested Positive" is the number of positive test results that came in for any tests ordered on that date. Test results might not be reported on the same day of the test, but are always shown on the same day here.
  • The actual number of both ordered tests and results is likely higher. This chart looks at recorded tests in structured data fields only, and does not take notes or other items in a patient's chart into consideration.
Refer to the UT-HIP Global COVID-19 dashboard for an analysis using other sources of data.
