It's Your Call: Moving From STD MIS to Other Software Options


NCSD continues our membership conference call series- “It’s Your Call.” “It’s Your Call” is a venue for members to discuss pertinent topics and subject matter of your choosing in a forum that fosters discussion and sharing among peers.

Our next call is scheduled for January 29th @ 2pm ET. Stacy Shriver, Florida Department of Health – Bureau of STD, and Amanda Gill, South Dakota Department of Health – Office of Disease Prevention, will lead our discussion on PRISM and Maven.

Choosing systems that are cost effective and provide timely access to quality data is imperative to all STD Programs. STD Programs are deciding which systems work best for their jurisdictions and offer multi-program data sharing.  This call will highlight two systems jurisdictions may use for surveillance.  The presenters will discuss how the system has impacted their work.

Following the overviews, members are encouraged to discuss:

►What programs are people considering?

►Why did you choose the software that you are using?

►What are the challenges and successes you have experienced with each system?

►How accessible is training?

►What are the costs associated with each system?

►What lessons learned can be shared?
