Electronic Handbooks (EHBs)

Health centers annually report UDS data on a web-based system called the Electronic Handbooks (EHBs). The system provides electronic forms necessary to complete the annual UDS Report.

The EHBs includes a Preliminary Reporting Environment (PRE) that provides early access to the UDS Report and is available in the fall. The PRE allows health centers to review UDS Report forms, enter available data, help identify potential data reporting errors, and provide additional preparation time to compile UDS data.

Resources and supports are available to assist health centers with the use of EHBs for UDS reporting and to access UDS Reports.
