Clinical Architecture’s 2023 Healthcare Data Quality Report: 80% of Healthcare Industry Concerned About Data Quality From External Sources

Clinical Architecture, a leading healthcare data quality solution provider, released its 2023 Healthcare Data Quality report. This report highlights the impact that data quality has on patient care and organizational performance along with the perceptions that care providers, academia, public health, value-based care, payers, life sciences, and vendors have about the quality of the patient data that flows into and out of their systems. The 2023 Healthcare Data Quality Report is the result of a survey conducted in January and February of this year. Respondents were asked a series of questions related to their use and trust of internal and external clinical data.

“This report supports what we have experienced when serving our clients — there is a significant data quality problem within healthcare. In fact, 69% of the survey respondents rated their enterprise patient data as mixed or poor quality. And 80% of survey respondents rated external sources of patient data as mixed or poor quality. When you drill down into the factors that lead to poor data quality, it makes it easier to tackle the problem. When organizations take the time to identify the root causes of data quality issues and apply best practices and the right tools, you can refine the quality of the data and use it in a way that is consistently reliable,” said Charlie Harp, Chief Executive Officer of Clinical Architecture.

40 Youth-Led Projects Earn Distinguished National Call for Kindness Prize

40 Youth-Led Projects Earn Distinguished National Call for Kindness Prize

Environmental Justice, Food Insecurity, and Acts of Service Are Top Themes Among Winners

40 Youth-Led Projects Earn Distinguished National Call for Kindness Prize
Early Entrepreneurs, 2023 C4K Winner

The program champions young girls in underserved communities to pursue entrepreneurship.

Riley’s Way Foundation just announced its 2023 Call For Kindness winners: 40 outstanding young people (ages 13-22) from across the country whose innovative ideas have granted them entrance into a dynamic leadership fellowship – and up to $3,000 each for their commitment to leading with kindness, empathy, and inclusivity.

“The Call for Kindness inspires and draws in exceptionally gifted young leaders who are driven by a deep passion to make the world a better place,” expressed Ian Sandler, Co-Founder and Board Chair of Riley’s Way. “These remarkable young leaders hold the key to tackling the world’s most pressing issues, and by investing in them, we can help them turn their ideas into reality. Whether they are just beginning to explore or have advanced plans, we strive to support and encourage them to imagine a better future and work tirelessly toward it.”

The Call For Kindness projects create a clear blueprint for uplifting communities and bringing hope for a better future. Forty winning social impact projects were chosen from hundreds of applications and came from 20 states. In addition to the general category, this year, Riley’s Way selected 10 inspiring projects focusing on environmental justice as young people noted this critical issue.

“The 2023 Call For Kindness winners reflect critical issues top of mind for young people today,” shared Dr. Christine O’Connell, Executive Director of Riley’s Way. “They answered the call to make a difference, adding to a national movement for kindness.”

Along with environmental justice, top themes among the 2023 C4K projects include addressing food insecurity, healthcare advocacy, volunteerism, entrepreneurial skill-building, STEAM, and meeting others’ basic needs. A few examples:

Connor’s Kindness Project provides specially curated “Kindness Kits” that are delivered to children in hospitals and shelters. And with Princess for a Day, girls in foster care participate in paint parties and other interactive events and activities to ensure they feel special, seen, and loved.

“To me, earning the Call For Kindness means a chance to make an impact,” shared 2023 C4K Winner Leigh Foran (IDEA). “This is a chance for me to learn to be a better version of myself while simultaneously making an impact on the world around me.” 

In addition to the 2023 Call For Kindness winners, Riley’s Way Foundation awarded eighteen continuation grants for previous winners to continue their social impact work.

“As someone who is passionate about using community impact and power to make change, Riley’s Way truly supports that,” shared Gillian Johnson, 2023 Continuation Grant Winner and Founder of Recovery Meet-Ups.

New Play About Impact of Teens and Social Media at La Mirada Theatre, One Day Only: May 18

New Play About Impact of Teens and Social Media at La Mirada Theatre, One Day Only: May 18

Phantom Projects Theatre Group will celebrate the World Premiere of its newest play, #TheSocialMediaPlay, inspired by real-life tragedy wrought upon young adults, and detailing the tumultuous relationship between cause and effect of social media usage in today’s unfiltered world.

New Play About Impact of Teens and Social Media at La Mirada Theatre, One Day Only: May 18
Real Teens. Real Stories. Real Impact

#TheSocialMediaPlay will debut May 18 at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts

Phantom Projects Theatre Group will celebrate the World Premiere of its newest play, #TheSocialMediaPlay, inspired by real-life tragedy wrought upon young adults, and detailing the tumultuous relationship between cause and effect of social media usage in today’s unfiltered world.

#TheSocialMediaPlay will be performed at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts on Thursday, May 18th at 9:30am, 12:30pm & 7pm. The production is written by Bruce Gevirtzman and directed by Steve Cisneros. Tickets are now on sale at or or 562-944-9801. 

As the landscape of digital communication has altered the way in which the youth of today interact with one another, it was only a matter of time before digital platforms were utilized for bullying and other forms of harassment. #TheSocialMediaPlay shines a light on the emotional turmoil caused by cyberbullying; a new method of perpetuating one of the oldest teen issues known to society. As a result, youth suicide rates tied to this type of behavior, are at an all time high.

The themes included in #TheSocialMediaPlay include real-life stories picked right out of the ashes of the tragedy; depicting actual accounts involving teens ripped from today’s headlines. This show focuses heavily on short term actions which levy very long term consequences.

Phantom Projects Theatre Group has consistently written and produced shows for young adults; PERFORMED by young adults. Such is the long-standing mission statement of an organization which seeks to provide a platform for interactive education. Known also for producing a score of additional shows, featuring adult actors; the shows featuring teen actors dealing with teen themes have become a true staple of this organization.

Phantom Projects Theatre Group co-founder, and show director Steve Cisneros began this theatre company while a teenager, specifically because at the time of inception, there were virtually no theatre organizations geared specifically to inspiring and educating people his own age, through the eyes of peers. Even 26 years later, the old-fashioned means of communication through theatre arts still finds its place within the youth community. Since 1997, Phantom Projects Theatre Group has seen nearly a thousand young actors perform for almost one million teens.

This show features an all youth cast: Noa Levy (17), Sean Ower (17), Nikolas Ramos (14), Julianna Rossi (18), Collin Higgins (15), Emma Imes (17), Krista Eliot (21), Sarah Ullerich (15), Sarah Morgan (17), Miles Peters (17), Samuel Perez (13), Sophia Glover (16), Alexis Gonzalez (15), & Baird Kraynak (15). The teen performers come from LA, Orange, and Riverside Counties.
