1 United States. In developed countries like the United States, public health informatics is practiced by individuals in public health agencies at the federal and state levels and in the larger local health jurisdictions. Collection of public health data. Since the beginning of the World Wide Web, public health agencies with sufficient information technology resources have been transitioning to web-based collection of public health data, and, more recently, to automated messaging of the same information. Since about 2005, the CDC has promoted the idea of the Public Health Information Network to facilitate the transmission of data from various partners in the health care industry and elsewhere hospitals, clinical and environmental laboratories, doctors' practices, pharmacies to local health agencies, then to state health agencies, and then to the CDC. A typical example would be infectious disease data, which hospitals, labs, and doctors are legally required to report to local health agencies; local health agen...

We hypothesize that the frequency of reasons patients present to the emergency department will change during epidemics and might be a valuable component of a disease surveillance system. We found support for this hypothesis over a two-year period with high frequency days of fever clustering during two periods of increased hospital influenza activity, but not during any other period during the two-years. Such a system could result in online monitoring, be independent of the medical personnel use of admission secretary, and might be able to identify various epidemics including increased hospital disease activity due to bio-terror attacks, influenza, and food...

I find Datalanche’s upcoming search application interesting because its database mixes public health data with patients’ clinical data from a private vendor. Practice Fusion opened up their data set of de-identified clinical information for a challenge that Datalanche won last week. The Datalanche service hasn’t gone live yet, but I got a chance to peek at it and enter searches for common drugs–where Datalanche can tell you what conditions they tend to be prescribed for–and common diagnoses–where Datalanche can tell you what is commonly prescribed for them–along with standard public health information, such as the demographics of people who are diagnosed with a particular condition or receive a particular drug. For instance, if a patient is prescribed one medication but returns quickly for a follow-up visit and is prescrib...

... Real-Time Syndromic Surveillance Continued... It provides insight into possible causes of a disease, clusters of disease outbreaks across a geographic area, and the evolution of disease outbreaks. Discussion Syndromic surveillance is a rapidly evolving discipline that is driven by timely concerns about emerging disease outbreaks or bioterrorism attacks. Electronic hospital administrative records have allowed the rapid retrieval of simple information, such as presenting chief complaint and demographic information, that can be used for analysis of real-time disease trends. Using GeoMedStat, real-time syndrome data can be mapped at the ZIP Code level within the state over a Web-based interface.

Diagnostic codes identify smoking status. Research News @ Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt University. Subscribe. Research News at Vanderbilt. Diagnostic codes identify smoking status by Leigh MacMillan. Smoking status is an important variable in epidemiological and genetic studies of disease risk. In the past, questionnaires or interviews were used to ascertain tobacco use, but current studies are increasingly using de-identified versions of electronic medical records for genetic research. William Bush , Ph.D., graduate student Laura Wiley and colleagues evaluated ICD-9 International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision tobacco use codes as identifiers of smoking status. The researchers compared smoking status determined by a manual review of clinical records to two automated definitions: ICD-9 and natural language processing that extracts smoking status from the narrative text of electronic medical records. They report in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association that ICD-9 tobacco use codes e...

PMID: 23037799 Owner: NLM Status: MEDLINE. Abstract/OtherAbstract:. It has been claimed that most research findings are false, and it is known that large-scale studies involving omics data are especially prone to errors in design, execution, and analysis. The situation is alarming because taxpayer dollars fund a substantial amount of biomedical research, and because the publication of a research article that is later determined to be flawed can erode the credibility of an entire field, resulting in a severe and negative impact for years to come. Here, we urge the development of an online, open-access, postpublication, peer review system that will increase the accountability of scientists for the quality of their research and the ability of readers to distinguish good from sloppy science. 22499439 - The science be...

*  Health informatics tools
... To provide the safe and effective delivery of medical care, virtually all clinical staff use a number of front-line 'Health Informatics Tools' in their day-to-day operations. Often, the development of these electronic processes is hampered by the conversion process from older paper processes, which were developed before the stricter development guidelines required in an electronic environment. To successfully implement each of these tools, hospitals generally must define who is responsible for, and a prescribed manner of building, testing, approving, coding, publishing, implementing/educating, and tracking the tool. Health Informatics Tools. Front-line health informatics tools sometimes informally called the "'Clinical Informatics Toolbelt'" generally include, but are not limited to, one of the following :. Clinical protocols - Tools used to standardize and automate care in a common clinical scenario. 4 Orders - Tools used to record and transmit detailed instructions to perform a procedure or deliver car...

... The emerging field of 'Health administration informatics' is concerned with the evaluation, acquisition, implementation and day-to-day operation of information technology systems in support of all administration and clinical functions within the health care industry. The closely related field of biomedical informatics is primarily focused on the use of information systems for acquisition and application of patients' medical data, whereas nursing informatics deals with the delivery, administration and evaluation of patient care and disease prevention. The field of health administration informatics is emerging as attention continues to focus on the costly mistakes made by some health care organizations whilst implementing electronic medical records.

*  Virtual rehabilitation
... 'Virtual rehabilitation' is a concept in psychology in which a therapeutic patient's training is based entirely on, or is augmented by, virtual reality simulation exercises. If there is no conventional therapy provided, the rehabilitation is said to be "virtual reality-based." Otherwise, if virtual rehabilitation is in addition to conventional therapy, the intervention is "virtual reality-augmented." Today, a majority of the population uses the virtual environment to navigate their daily lives and almost one fourth of the world population uses the internet. As a result, virtual rehabilitation and gaming rehabilitation, or rehabilitation through gaming consoles, have become quite common. In fact, virtual therapy has been used over regular therapeutic methods in order to treat a number of disorders. The term Virtual Rehabilitation was coined in 2002 by Professor Daniel Thalmann of EPFL Switzerland and Professor Grigore Burdea of Rutgers University USA. Since 2008, the virtual rehabilitation "community" has...

(1/367) The potential for research-based information in public health: identifying unrecognised information needs.

OBJECTIVE: To explore whether there is a potential for greater use of research-based information in public health practice in a local setting. Secondly, if research-based information is relevant, to explore the extent to which this generates questioning behaviour. DESIGN: Qualitative study using focus group discussions, observation and interviews. SETTING: Public health practices in Norway. PARTICIPANTS: 52 public health practitioners. RESULTS: In general, the public health practitioners had a positive attitude towards research-based information, but believed that they had few cases requiring this type of information. They did say, however, that there might be a potential for greater use. During five focus groups and six observation days we identified 28 questions/cases where it would have been appropriate to seek out research evidence according to our definition. Three of the public health practitioners identified three of these 28 cases as questions for which research-based information could have been relevant. This gap is interpreted as representing unrecognised information needs. CONCLUSIONS: There is an unrealised potential in public health practice for more frequent and extensive use of research-based information. The practitioners did not appear to reflect on the need for scientific information when faced with new cases and few questions of this type were generated.  (+info)

(2/367) A case-control study of autism and mumps-measles-rubella vaccination using the general practice research database: design and methodology.

BACKGROUND: An association between mumps-measles-rubella (MMR) vaccination and the onset of symptoms typical of autism has recently been suggested. This has led to considerable concern about the safety of the vaccine. METHODS: A matched case-control study using data derived form the United Kingdom General Practice Research Database. Children with a possible diagnosis of autism will be identified from their electronic health records. All diagnoses will be validated by a detailed review of hospital letters and by using information derived from a parental questionnaire. Ten controls per case will be selected from the database. Conditional logistic regression will be used to assess the association between MMR vaccination and autism. In addition case series analyses will be undertaken to estimate the relative incidence of onset of autism in defined time intervals after vaccination. The study is funded by the United Kingdom Medical Research Council. DISCUSSION: Electronic health databases offer tremendous opportunities for evaluating the adverse effects of vaccines. However there is much scope for bias and confounding. The rigorous validation of all diagnoses and the collection of additional information by parental questionnaire in this study are essential to minimise the possibility of misleading results.  (+info)

(3/367) Using automated medical records for rapid identification of illness syndromes (syndromic surveillance): the example of lower respiratory infection.

BACKGROUND: Gaps in disease surveillance capacity, particularly for emerging infections and bioterrorist attack, highlight a need for efficient, real time identification of diseases. METHODS: We studied automated records from 1996 through 1999 of approximately 250,000 health plan members in greater Boston. RESULTS: We identified 152,435 lower respiratory infection illness visits, comprising 106,670 episodes during 1,143,208 person-years. Three diagnoses, cough (ICD9CM 786.2), pneumonia not otherwise specified (ICD9CM 486) and acute bronchitis (ICD9CM 466.0) accounted for 91% of these visits, with expected age and sex distributions. Variation of weekly occurrences corresponded closely to national pneumonia and influenza mortality data. There was substantial variation in geographic location of the cases. CONCLUSION: This information complements existing surveillance programs by assessing the large majority of episodes of illness for which no etiologic agents are identified. Additional advantages include: a) sensitivity, uniformity and efficiency, since detection of events does not depend on clinicians' to actively report diagnoses, b) timeliness, the data are available within a day of the clinical event; and c) ease of integration into automated surveillance systems. These features facilitate early detection of conditions of public health importance, including regularly occurring events like seasonal respiratory illness, as well as unusual occurrences, such as a bioterrorist attack that first manifests as respiratory symptoms. These methods should also be applicable to other infectious and non-infectious conditions. Knowledge of disease patterns in real time may also help clinicians to manage patients, and assist health plan administrators in allocating resources efficiently.  (+info)

(4/367) Conceptual framework of public health surveillance and action and its application in health sector reform.

BACKGROUND: Because both public health surveillance and action are crucial, the authors initiated meetings at regional and national levels to assess and reform surveillance and action systems. These meetings emphasized improved epidemic preparedness, epidemic response, and highlighted standardized assessment and reform. METHODS: To standardize assessments, the authors designed a conceptual framework for surveillance and action that categorized the framework into eight core and four support activities, measured with indicators. RESULTS: In application, country-level reformers measure both the presence and performance of the six core activities comprising public health surveillance (detection, registration, reporting, confirmation, analyses, and feedback) and acute (epidemic-type) and planned (management-type) responses composing the two core activities of public health action. Four support activities - communications, supervision, training, and resource provision - enable these eight core processes. National, multiple systems can then be concurrently assessed at each level for effectiveness, technical efficiency, and cost. CONCLUSIONS: This approach permits a cost analysis, highlights areas amenable to integration, and provides focused intervention. The final public health model becomes a district-focused, action-oriented integration of core and support activities with enhanced effectiveness, technical efficiency, and cost savings. This reform approach leads to sustained capacity development by an empowerment strategy defined as facilitated, process-oriented action steps transforming staff and the system.  (+info)

(5/367) Assessment of the infectious diseases surveillance system of the Republic of Armenia: an example of surveillance in the Republics of the former Soviet Union.

BACKGROUND: Before 1991, the infectious diseases surveillance systems (IDSS) of the former Soviet Union (FSU) were centrally planned in Moscow. The dissolution of the FSU resulted in economic stresses on public health infrastructure. At the request of seven FSU Ministries of Health, we performed assessments of the IDSS designed to guide reform. The assessment of the Armenian infectious diseases surveillance system (AIDSS) is presented here as a prototype. DISCUSSION: We performed qualitative assessments using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for evaluating surveillance systems. Until 1996, the AIDSS collected aggregate and case-based data on 64 infectious diseases. It collected information on diseases of low pathogenicity (e.g., pediculosis) and those with no public health intervention (e.g., infectious mononucleosis). The specificity was poor because of the lack of case definitions. Most cases were investigated using a lengthy, non-disease-specific case-report form Armenian public health officials analyzed data descriptively and reported data upward from the local to national level, with little feedback. Information was not shared across vertical programs. Reform should focus on enhancing usefulness, efficiency, and effectiveness by reducing the quantity of data collected and revising reporting procedures and information types; improving the quality, analyses, and use of data at different levels; reducing system operations costs; and improving communications to reporting sources. These recommendations are generalizable to other FSU republics. SUMMARY: The AIDSS was complex and sensitive, yet costly and inefficient. The flexibility, representativeness, and timeliness were good because of a comprehensive health-care system and compulsory reporting. Some data were questionable and some had no utility.  (+info)

(6/367) Verbal autopsy of 48 000 adult deaths attributable to medical causes in Chennai (formerly Madras), India.

BACKGROUND: In the city of Chennai, India, registration of the fact of death is almost complete but the cause of death is often inadequately recorded on the death certificate. A special verbal autopsy (VA) study of 48 000 adult deaths in Chennai during 1995-97 was conducted to arrive at the probable underlying cause of death and to measure cause specific mortality rates for Chennai. METHODS: Trained non-medical graduates with at least 15 years of formal education interviewed the surviving family members or an associate of the deceased to write a report on the complaints, symptoms, signs, duration and treatment details of illness prior to death. Each report was reviewed centrally by two physicians independently. The reliability was assessed by comparing deaths attributed to cancer by VA with records in Vital Statistics Department and Chennai Cancer Registry. RESULTS: The VA reduced the proportion of deaths attributed to unspecified medical causes and unknown causes from 37% to 7% in early adult life and middle age (25-69 yrs) and has yielded fewer unspecified causes (only 10%) than the death certificate. The sensitivity of VA to identify cancer was 94% in the age group 25-69. CONCLUSION: VA is practicable for deaths in early adult life or middle age and is of more limited value in old age. A systematic program of VA of a representative sample of deaths could assign broad causes not only to deaths in childhood (as has previously been established) but also to deaths in early adult life and middle age.  (+info)

(8/367) Investigation of multistate foodborne disease outbreaks.

The U.S. food supply is characterized increasingly by centralized production and wide distribution of products, and more foodborne disease outbreaks are dispersed over broad geographic areas. Such outbreaks may present as a gradual, diffuse, and initially unapparent increase in sporadic cases. Recognition and reporting by clinicians and local public health officials and the ordering of laboratory tests by clinicians continue to be cornerstones of detecting all outbreaks. New methods--such as active laboratory-based surveillance, automated algorithms for detecting increases in infection rates, and molecular subtyping--facilitate detection of diffuse outbreaks. Routines have evolved for the investigation of multistate outbreaks; they are characterized by rapid communication between local, state, and federal public health officials; timely review of epidemiologic data by expert panels; collaboration on tracebacks with food safety regulatory agencies; and communication with the public and media. Rapid, efficient investigation of multistate outbreaks may result in control of acute public health emergencies, identification and correction of hazardous food production and processing practices, and consequent improvement in food safety.  (+info)

----------

A. Public health looks at everyone from all over. We (I'm an epidemiologist) are concerned with things that may be coming down the pike and hit all of us (like bird flu, etc.). Community health mostly involves doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals that tailor interventions to a particular community's needs, and they generally don't plan out for "the bigger picture", although they do a heck a job in their locales, since they know it better.


What are the similarities and differences between the field or approach of community health and public health?


Also, how would the two approaches be similar or different with regard to preventing underage drinking?

I know that public health concerns the health of everyone and involves activities such as surveillance, monitoring and enforcement of health laws and policies to ensure the health of the population and community health is concerned with a certain geographic location or characteristic of the population. Community health is usually involved with more health promotion, health education and health services stuff. However, I'm not quite sure how the two fields or approaches would address preventing underage drinking. 

If you have any comments or advice, it would be much appreciated. Thank you!
----------

Although both public health and law enforcement protect the public, the approach and nature of the work performed in the two disciplines are quite different. The similarities and differences in public health and law enforcement investigations have to be understood and coordinated so that both can be most effective ( Table ). Public health investigations generally take an inductive approach. Persons are interviewed, data are collected, hypotheses are developed to explain transmission, and epidemiological and laboratory studies are conducted to test these hypotheses. If the studies confirm the hypothesis, prevention and control strategies are developed, implemented, and evaluated. All this work is held to the standard of scientific peer review, generally through presentation of data at scientific meetings and publication in a scientific journal.


What's a really good way to gain experience in the field of public health during the summer?


I would like to pursue my education in public health. I'm from a social science/international development background. I am mostly interested in injuries, violence, mental health and women's health. I'm volunteering at the Sexual Assault Center but I'm sure there's something else I could do during the summer.
----------

You can also try volunteering at any state run facility for the mentally handicapped. There you will find mental,physical, and aggressive behavior patients all at one facility. You will probably have to go through a 2 week safety training session for both the safety of yourself and the people there. You might also try to volunteer at a place for women that have been in a physically abusive relationship. I would imagine you might have to go though the state or county for that because of the safety issues. Good luck and God Bless. This is a very hard career to work in. I actually did most of my nursing in a state facility. People like yourself are desperately needed and I'm sure you'll find that there are so many rewards that you'll be glad you did. It's a very hard job, but your will be gratified in the care of the people that you come in contact with.


What are 2 public health concerns that have a bearing on nutritonal status?


I have to a do a nutrition project for nursing school and I have to write something on the following question but I can't figure out what the 2 public health concerns may be.  Any help?

What are 2 public health concerns that have a bearing on nutritonal status?
----------

Salmonella tomatoes...

and other bad fruits and veggies...


What are some public health concerns associated with plastics?


I'm doing a paper in favor of bioplastics. I'm wondering what are the cons of using plastics, in regard to public health. 
Does burning them in landfill release volitile chemicals? Which ones? Are there material within the plastic which will leech out?
----------

There's currently a controversy over whether or not those popular Nalgene bottles are safe, since independent research has revealed the possibility that their polyurethane plastic material might leech an estrogen-like chemincal that could interfere with one's hormone balance and thus affect one's health.


What does a Public Health Emergency Level 5 mean?


What happens when the public health reaches level 5? One of my friends said that all of the schools get shut down, but it seems that we've already reached level five because of the swine flu but we're still in school...So what happens at this level and can someone explain what happens at the various levels?
----------

No it just means that the World Health Org thinks that a pandemic is imminent. It happens when it has spread from person to person in two or more countries.

In the 2009 revision of the phase descriptions, WHO has retained the use of a six-phased approach for easy incorporation of new recommendations and approaches into existing national preparedness and response plans. The grouping and description of pandemic phases have been revised to make them easier to understand, more precise, and based upon observable phenomena. Phases 1–3 correlate with preparedness, including capacity development and response planning activities, while Phases 4–6 clearly signal the need for response and mitigation efforts. Furthermore, periods after the first pandemic wave are elaborated to facilitate post pandemic recovery activities.


What emerging disease has become a burden in relation to public health?


Discussion Question: choose an emerging disease and discuss the related public health burden.

This biggest issue that people are going to talk about is going to be the H1N1virus. I would have to agree with them, although I am sick and tired of hearing about the subject of H1N1. My personal belief is that the terrorist Barack Obama and his cabinet released the virus. Terrorist Obama is wanting a 20% reduction of the U.S. population by the end of 2010. In other words he (the terrorist) is planning to kill people off; maybe that is why he has been so interested in passing the stupid "health" bill.

The H1N1 virus (or Swine Flu) is the biggest burden to the public, because the government is trying to force people to take the vaccine. Health care workers are being told they will be fined over one thousand dollars and cannot work if he or she does not get the H1N1 vaccine. What kind of government (United States government) forces people to get something which could and most likely will hurt them or their children? The United States of America is supposed to be a free country, yet people do not see those freedoms. The H1N1 virus put so many people all over the world into a panic that the virus is the only thing people hear about, when it comes to medical information. Everyone understands how things spread and what they can do to stop the spread of germs and viruses. Making someone take or get a vaccine they do not want to get is wrong and should not be done. The public keeps hearing that the H1N1 vaccine is safe and there are "no" side effects. First off, there are always side effect when it comes to drugs and treatments. Second, the vaccine was not ever tested. Third, those who are saying this work for the U.S. government (being run by a terrorist). I personally will not get the H1N1 vaccine and nether will my child.
