Data quality assurance measures (DQAMs) for electronic death investigation data



Data quality assurance measures (DQAMs) for electronic death investigation data



American Journal of Forensic Medicine and Pathology 15(1): 58-62



Data quality assurance measures (DQAMs) involve manual and computerized procedures to ensure that essential death investigation data have been collected, essential data have been entered into a data base, electronic data accurately reflect the original information, data entries are consistent with one another, words are spelled correctly, numbers and values are entered correctly, and coding is consistent if codes are used. Quality assurance of death investigation data is essential to ensure accuracy in computer-generated office documents and data used for research and public health purposes. A basic approach to the development of DQAMs is discussed, and specific death investigation variables are presented that lend themselves to quality assurance measures.
