The GRID Exam Search report is a useful way to review the accuracy of data submitted to the registry to identify missing  or incorrect data. To help check for data completeness and accuracy, the report enables you to query the exam data using a variety of criteria.  Regularly reviewing the data can help you correct data entry or submission problems early on and ensure the data your facility submits for quality measure reporting are of high quality.

 

You can access the report by selecting GRID Exam Search from the Interactive Reports menu.

Select at least one Corporate Account and click Apply to retrieve data using the following report filters to refine the data returned in the report:

  • Facility lists all facilities associated with the selected Corporate Account(s)

  • Exam From and To allows users to enter the time period of interest

  • Modality, Place of Service, Physician NPI, CPT Code, Anatomy, and Study Name filters list all available values

By submitting Reporting Place of Service data to the registry, you can review submission results by Ambulatory, Inpatient and ED care settings.

  • Turnaround (filter) limits the rows displayed based on the computed turnaround time. The left and right ends of the filter display the minimum and maximum values for the rows displayed in the report.

 

The sample report presented below shows exams completed on January 23, 2020 for two facilities. The far-right column displays the turnaround time, in hours, both numerically and with a bar to help highlight larger values. The bar is light gray for positive turnaround times and red for negative values.

Note: Negative turnaround times likely indicate incorrect data and should be investigated.
