And we’re providing tools and resources to support these Strategic Research Areas. We’ve built out areas of the Research Gateway to include portals for each of our Strategic Research Areas. We’ve developed these pages toprovide Links, Features, Networking Opportunities and Resources for team science. These portals also promote NC State as “real-world team scientists” externally. This is an example of our Safety and Security portal.
Gives overview of the process. What is unique about NC: Use cases provided by UNC EM department, UNC PH and NC PHCurrent integrated data sources, Systems Infrastructutre at UNC, NCSU and SAS in a VCL as a proven platform used even in Va for connecting the University Systems. IRODS a rule based sharing process that facilitates sharing of data, and world class analytic capabiiites at SAS and NCSUEnds with transition to Health Data for the next slide on NC Detect
NC Detect currently has some automated analytics primary based on CDC EARS program. It is recievied daily data from these sources and more and can receive from many more. The kinds of analytic questions that can be asked of this system to improve syndromic surveillance, situational awareness, imporve decision making and raise the qualtity of halth care is the way to advance public health and reduce local, state and national threats.
Local and bottom up approach to Public Health Response; Hospitals. Paramedics, Poison Centers.119 hospitals reporting every 12 hrs.
CDC program to gather ED information as part of syndromic surveillence
Here is an example of better syndromic surveillance for Influenza. The ability to analyze data from different surveillance sources as well as sort the data by age, disposition or whatever creates earlier, accurate indications
Another example of enhanced Syndromic Surveillance NCBP will bring to these challenges can be seen in this tick borne data. The green is the reported state DPH data that is hard to see the peaks. The red is the ICD codes reported out which show the peaks nicely but are slower in recognition of the syndrome than the blue data the is an analysis of the keyword tick from ED unstructured data. So we can begin to see ways to detect earlier and more accurately syndromes by these simple enhanced approaches of which there are hundreds already indentified and waiting to be analyzed with in NCBP
NCBP’s goal of improved Situational Awareness and better decision support to policy makers can be seen in the use of a secure informatics exchange in iRods ( intergrated Rules Oriented Datat Systems) that use a rules orient system to facilitate information sharing among risk adverse data holders such that as severity of incidents and syndromes expands dashboards become populated with additional information that is essential of early detection and effective response in an automatic manner. These processes provide a clear audit trail of when and how this information was shared and the value of these procedures to the outcome.
