IBIS-PH: Overview, Architecture, Components and Terms April 15, 2009
Purpose • A brief overview of the IBIS system, from an end user’s point of view. • What can IBIS offer to your organization and constituents?
http://ibis.health.utah.gov Utah’s IBIS-PH homepage provides access to all areas of the website and information on new features. This is a standard home page template, but states adopting IBIS can either modify the content only, or the whole page.
IBIS Information Dissemination Model: Most frequently-asked questions are answered in paper (.pdf) publications and in our Indicator Profile reports. Users who’d like more detailed analysis or sub-populations can use the interactive query system. If none of those systems answer their question, they must go to the “old” system of calling us on the phone.

Custom Data Query - Public • Allows users to query health data sets directly • General audience • User-friendly GUI interface • Sound epidemiology • Help descriptions & instructions • Bullet-proof – can’t confuse or give misleading answers, can’t allow users to do “stupid” things • Data suppression rules in effect The IBIS Query system allows members of the general public to access several public health data sets and generate query results based on their specifications.
Custom Data Query - Secure • Allows assigned users to query secured data sets directly • Selected audience • State and local health department staff • Researchers • No data suppression The IBIS Query secure system allows selected users to access several public health data sets and generate query results based on their specifications.
3. Use “QueryBuilder” page to select query parameters and submit query.

The IBIS query system can also produce map views of data. Maps provide mouse-over information and zooming if the user has Adobe’s SVG viewer installed.

IBIS Indicator Reports • Allows users to view a report of data that have already been tabulated. • For more novice users, easier, more user-friendly. • Webpage CONTENT MANAGEMENT system, not a query system.
Utah has over 170 indicator profiles currently published. They are indexed in an alphabetical index (pictured here) and also in a categorical index that allows indicators to be placed in any of several categorization schemes, such as by program, by data source, HP2010 focus area, EPHT, etc
Each indicator has a default graph that comes up on the indicator main page and a message on why it is an important construct in public health.
The main page also allows navigation to a table of numbers for the current graph, as well as access to additional graphs (if they exist). We also include the measure definition.
Numerator* Denominator* Important facts about each measure include a number of fields. Not all fields are mandatory – mandatory fields are shown here with an asterisk. Definition* Data Interpretation Issues Why Is This Important?* Other Objectives How Are We Doing? Utah Versus U.S. What Is Being Done? Other Program Information HP 2010 Objectives*
The IBIS indicator profiles allow users to see how the current measure might be related to other measures.
Programs can use IBIS to inform the general public of services and resources.

This is the indicator main page, where we have provided text boxes to maintain some of the fields at the indicator level.
Numeric graph values must be hand entered at this time. We are looking at either having the capability to automatically enter data from the query system or from a spread sheet.
