Research Institution
Phase II goals will be to: 1. To develop a production version of an Integration toolkit (ITK) that can deployed at low cost to clinics using spina bifida EMR (to improve the efficiency of their participation in the NSBPR) 2. To pilot the ITK at selected SB-EMR clinics 3. To evaluate the impact of the production version of the ITK The ITK will be developed based on design principles & specifications identified in Phase I, and existing HL7 and other relevant standards. Traditional integration toolkits are used to transform, route clone & translate messages, and link disparate systems & data sources. The ITK developed in the SBIR contract would transform source data & capture additional data in a useable form for the target system, and thereby eliminate duplicate data entry. The successful deployment of the ITK to SB clinics can be expected to result in more cases being submitted to the NSBPR & the submission of more accurate & more timely data. Consequently and increased ability to evaluate the quality of care & effectiveness on interventions. The anticipated result of the project would be a tested & evaluated production version of the ITK.
