Diving into Data Validation with the ANIA

admin Analytics Competencies, Healthcare Analytics

Last week, in the middle of National Health IT Week, the American Nursing Informatics Association (ANIA) launched the peer-reviewed Journal of Informatics Nursing (JIN). To celebrate the birth of a new source of scholarly content, the first issue is free for all!

The article “Data Validation: Swimming in the Depths of Data” supports individuals who are implementing a systematic process for data validation:

  • Assessment
  • Planning
  • Implementation
  • Analysis
  • Evaluation

One of the best takeaways from the article is a table on Categorizing Data Issues (pg. 9).

The journal has even implemented CNE activities directly into the reading and learning experience. After reading this article, you can easily submit an evaluation and earn 1.3 contact hours!

Kudos to AINA for a scholarly information source for sharing for all within healthcare analytics and an opportunity for professional development credit.
