D2D 3.0 Data Dictionary

The data dictionary version 4  describes indicators for D2D 3.0 and includes some changes from the initial set of indicators reported in D2D 1.0 and D2D 2.0. The definitions and data sources for these indicators are based on the Primary Care Performance Measurement Framework (PCPMF) wherever possible. Although the goal is to not have multiple versions of the data dictionary, it is inevitable that there will be at least one update in the future to incorporate the finalized expanded indicators.
