Data Sharing Through Dashboards: The Who, What, Where, When, and Why

Presented April 26, 2019.

Description: Join us for this lightning talk webinar experience where you will see multiple examples of data dashboards and learn more about who they were created for, how they were developed, where and when the data is being shared, and what impact the dashboard has had on improving public health practice. We will hear from 5 presenters from around the public health community as they discuss their work on opioid, flu, and general disease surveillance dashboards.

Presenters addressed the following questions:

The Myths and Truths About Comparing Syndromic Data Across Sites

One of the more recent successes of NSSP has been the introduction of more robust data quality monitoring and reporting. However, despite the increased insight into data quality, there are still concerns about data sharing and comparisons across sites. For NSSP to be most effective, users need to feel confident in sharing data and making comparisons across sites.

Why You Should Participate in HHS (Health and Human Services) Regional Epi Groups

One of the early successes for the National Syndromic Surveillance Program'™s (NSSP'™s) BioSense Platform was community agreement on what should make up national and regional picture of the data. For NSSP to meet program objectives, National level surveillance and situational awareness had to be made available – not just to CDC, but to the entire community. To make this possible, the community had to agree on a limited dataset that would be sufficient to produce national and regional picture.

The RHINO Community of Practice: Building a Space for Data Users and Enthusiasts in Washington State

Prior to June 2016, there were 45 registered users of syndromic surveillance data in Washington State, with 29 (64.4%) representing 5 of Washington’s 35 local health jurisdictions and 16 (35.6%) at the state level. Of those registered users, 9 (8.8%) had logged into ESSENCE at least once in the 6 months before October 2016. In June 2016, the Washington State syndromic surveillance program began accepting Meaningful Use data and sought to increase its user base.

Improving the Quality of Data Exchange Formats in the U.S. National Tuberculosis Surveillance System

Disease surveillance systems remain the best quality systems to rely on when standardized surveillance systems provide the best data to understand disease occurrence and trends. The United States National Tuberculosis Surveillance System (NTSS) contains reported tuberculosis (TB) cases provided by all 50 states, the District of Columbia (DC), New York City, Puerto Rico, and other U.S.-affiliated jurisdictions in the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea.

How do we present messy syndromic surveillance data to public health’s partners?

With increasing awareness of SyS systems, there has been a concurrent increase in demand for data from these systems – both from researchers and from the media. The opioid epidemic occurring in the United States has forced the SyS community to determine the best way to present these data in a way that makes sense while acknowledging the incompleteness and variability in how the data are collected at the hospital level and queried at the user level.

Transforming Public Health Surveillance Through Open Public Health Information

Public health practice that prevents, detects, and responds to communicable and noncommunicable disease threats is hindered by poor access to public health data and information. This includes timely sharing of case-based information, respecting patent and publication rights, and the ethical sharing of specimens. Disagreements about information shared and under what circumstances plus who has right to the data, clinical specimens, and their derivative products impede research and countermeasures. Delayed or inaction by public health authorities undermines trust and exacerbates the crisis.

Using Electronic Health Data for Community Health

A report jointly released by the de Beaumont Foundation and Johns Hopkins University, Using Electronic Health Data for Community Health: Example Cases and Legal Analysis provides public health departments with a framework that will allow them to request data from hospitals and health systems in order to move the needle on critical public health challenges.
