Each type of EMR system differs slightly in the extraction process. Data extractions occur twice each year (or quarterly in some regions) on June 30 and December 31. The data cleaning, coding, and standardization processes usually take 1-2 months after the data are extracted. Your DPT will be automatically updated after these processes are complete.
