National Data Exchange Platform
- Develop and maintain a national data exchange hub to facilitate secure transport, translation/transformation and analysis for both public and private healthcare organizations.
- Use cases include:
- Quest Diagnostics reportable disease reporting
- National disease surveillance including influenza, bioterrorism and Coronavirus (COVID19)
- Electronic Case Reporting with over 5,500 hospitals
- FISMA Moderate, EHNAC, DirectTrust, HIPAA compliant platform on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
- Integration and transport tools.
- Web portals.
- Streamlined onboarding process.
- 24/7/365 Support.
- Research & Development.
- Dedicated staff focused on project management, data integration, development and security. P R O B L E M www.AIMSPlatform.com
National Vital Statistics Platform
- Original version of STEVE used a locally installed, point-to-point file transfer method for data exchange.
- Files were sent directly to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and other jurisdictions that had the STEVE 1.0 application installed via the PHIN MS ‘direct send’ protocol (ebXML web services and encryption).
- Utilized a new web based application backed by cloud-based infrastructure within the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) AIMS Platform, STEVE 2.0 provides bi-directional file messaging capabilities amongst jurisdictions and the CDC.
- The new solution offers operational flexibility and the ability to scale quickly while significantly reducing the technical footprint for each jurisdiction.
- Facilitates secure data (birth and death records) exchange between all US jurisdictions and the CDC.
Data Integration Center of Competency
- Lack of interoperability between 67 county health departments across the state of Florida.
- Absence of an expert data integration team and tool.
- Support the Zika outbreak.
- Provide integration via a long term managed services contract.
- Provide expert resources and tools to support the secure data flow of millions of messages on a daily basis.
- Support over 200 interfaces with hospitals and labs across the state as well as interfaces with other states across the US.
- Provide and implement an interoperability technology roadmap including cloud computing.
- Slow, insecure, large-batch NBS cases.
- Missed billing opportunities.
- Manual clerical errors which cause delays.
- Electronic Test Orders/Results (ETOR) via HL7.
- Secure web portal.
- Robust results reporting.
- Improved patient care.
- Accurate same-day or next-day reporting.
- Improved billing.
Data Science Workshops
Centralized COVID-19 ELR
Ruvos partners with the American Public Health Laboratories (APHL) Datapult team to support ELR (Electronic Lab Reporting) and ETOR (Electronic Test Orders & Results) across all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and several large cities and counties
Built on the AIMS platform, Datapult allows reporters to quickly send massive amounts of testing data for COVID-19 (including “Over the Counter” tests), Genomic Sequencing, and Tuberculosis testing, all of which are tailored to the distinct messaging standards of public health laboratories and agencies.
Modernization Across America
- Electronic Lab Reporting (ELR), a mission-critical service for public health agencies and a core Meaningful Use objective – continues to grow in volume and significance and will benefit greatly from modernization efforts
- ELR programs face common challenges including inbound data from many trading partners using diverse technologies, data volume surges particularly during outbreak and pandemic events, reduced data quality from non-traditional data senders with limited technology capacity,
- Public health agencies need to maintain current operations while simultaneously addressing a host of new challenges including adopting new technologies, the need for improved data quality, data validation, and proactive monitoring of data flows and quality, and limited staffing resources
- A common strategy for public health agencies – the Integrity Platform – a secure, cloud-based platform that provides scalable data ingress from diverse data sources, data validation and quality assessment, anomaly detection, data egress to make data available to connected applications, and systems monitoring and notifications
- Integrity strategically applies scalable technology solutions, improves data quality and reliability, and frees up public health staff to focus on surveillance and intervention
- In addition to modernizing ELR, other critical public health programs including Electronic Case Reporting (eCR), Syndromic Surveillance, immunization registries, and Newborn Screening can leverage the Integrity Platform, giving public health agencies a centralized, enterprise-wide view of data activity and quality across programs
