Chronic Disease Surveillance STEPS Approach

At the end of this week you will be able to:

Analyze how the development of informatics in public       health represents a shift from the historical status quo toward new       missions, new identities, and new opportunities. (CLO 1,2,3,4)

Explain how health informatics has advanced the       mission of the community public health departments for individual health       behaviors. (CLO 1,2,3,4)

Interpret the movement towards Accountable Care       Organizations (ACOs) and how this represents a potential major shift in       the delivery of health care. (CLO 1,2,3,4)

Assess how individual patient data can contribute and       integrate local findings to public health’s mission of disease management       and prevention. (CLO 1,2,3,4)



Online Learning Materials: Each of you will work independently this week to read, analyze and write-up an assigned health care organization role and simulation IQUERY Surveillance Simulation Data Tool associated with integration of Public Health in primary care. Specifically, the case studies focus on the role of HIE to integrate Public Health practices in the clinical setting to improve the quality of primary care.  

Simulation Assignment Instructions

Required Simulation Assignment Format:

Each case write-up should be 1000 words (+/- 50       words).  Answer the four questions about the case in the order       in which they are presented below.  This will give you an organized       outline for your write-up.  Be sure that your response substantively       addresses the following four questions:

Simulation Assignment Format: 

  1. Background/Introduction – Background and introduction to the case       study. 
  2. Analysis – Responses to the assignment questions using section       headers and supportive references. 
  3. Question 1: Formulate a hypothesis        regarding the current trends in integrating primary care and disease-specific/syndromic        surveillance?  Defend your hypothesis with evidence from the type        of data is collected. (This is your position statement.) (WO 1)
  4. Questions 2: Discuss and defend the role        of Accountable Care Organizations (ACO’s), your assigned role and health        information systems (EHRs, CDSS and HIE) as appropriate to disease        specific and syndromic surveillance systems. (WO3)
  5. Question 3: Conclude and explain the        successful achievements of the health care information systems based on        the data in the IQUERY TOOL.  In spite of the success in data        collection, and considering lessons learned on health care information        systems, how can the data be collected differently and why? Interpret        and discuss strategies that the organizations could have been done        differently. (WO2)
  6. Question 4: Propose and discuss the        future prospects regarding the integrating disease specific/ syndromic        surveillance and primary care, defend your conclusions regarding the        likely success in integrating primary care and public health practice in        improving population health. (WO4)
  7. Conclusion – Concluding discussion and comments using references       as needed.
