The quality of data is a key issue for any healthcare registry. RIAP data, about the surgeries of hip, knee, shoulder and ankle, is described by a set of variables (MDS – Minimum Data Set), each one with its own domain and dependencies from other variables (business rules). High-quality data relies on records whose values respect both the domain and the business rules for the variables. BRAVa (Business Rules Automatic Validator) is a service that automatically applies the required validity checks to data and generates detailed reports to allow detection of quality issues.
