UDS Test Cooperative

As part of the Uniform Data System (UDS) Modernization Initiative, the UDS Test Cooperative (UTC) was established to systematically test proposed changes to UDS and provide HRSA with evidence on whether a change is feasible.  The goal is to evolve UTC into a key support for HRSA’s Learning Health Center System.

The UTC is made up of voluntary representatives from health centers, Primary Care Associations, Health Center Controlled Networks and Health IT Vendors, who work together to test and evaluate proposed UDS changes.

For more information about UDS Modernization, visit the UDS Modernization Initiative webpage.
