The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation selects DatStat as the foundation for ground breaking healthcare project
Date:6/28/2010

DatStat Research Management Solution is the platform of choice for cost effective and easily scalable Data Collection system to explore disparities in chronic disease among US communities. Seattle, WA - June 15, 2010: The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) announced today that it has chosen DatStat as the foundation technology to help automate the data collection and study management process for their transformational healthcare project.

(PRWEB) June 28, 2010 -- IHME selected DatStat to identify a solution that would simplify its data collection and research operations. IHME sought out a solution that was flexible enough to support the scale and breadth of this healthcare initiative and that also provided the reliability, security and data integrity needed for this rigorous research effort. The solution had to support protocols for public release of the integrated chronic disease surveillance data that guarantee individual privacy while also maximizing the use of these data by the research and policy analysis community. Key factors in the IHME decision were DatStat’s, sophisticated product capabilities and application flexibility.

“This project will explore disparities in chronic disease among US communities by designing a cost-effective and easily scalable data collection system to track such diseases and their accompanying risk factors using multiple data sources” said Dr. Ali Mokdad. “Available data on health outcomes, health determinants, and quality and access to care reveal huge racial and ethnic disparities across communities in the US. Yet these disparities are only partially understood. The study is intended to resolve a series of outstanding technical measurement issues, develop operational protocols, and produce results relevant to health policy formulation that have the ability to extend at a national level.”

Participants in this project
IHME is engaging with several key collaborators who together bring a multidisciplinary approach to the project. Collaborators at the Harvard School of Public Health will focus their efforts on assessing risk factors among different communities, such as metabolic risks, diet, and tobacco use. Collaborators at the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice will contribute their expertise in analyzing Medicare and health expenditure data. Collaborators at Public Health – Seattle & King County will advise on how to effectively and respectfully reach individuals within King County and lend their expertise on the health services available to those communities. Together, all will advise on how best to provide information that is useful to the policy and research communities while being respectful of individuals and their privacy concerns.
