Data Provenience

The user of a Dataleaf® product, especially a data mart, can see provenience information for any data element by clicking that field in the normal user interface.

Information includes:

  • History (earlier changes in code values, etc.)
  • Where this data element came from, and exactly how it was re-coded
  • Catalogued reports (what catalogued reports contain this data element)
  • Current summary statistics for the data element (average, max, min, standard deviation, frequency distribution)
  • Past, present, and alternate field names
