The Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts contracted with MPHI to develop a web-based course on brain injury in adults. The course includes six modules: Traumatic Brain Injury 101, Screening and Resources, Mental Health, Psychopharmacology, Alcohol & Drug Use and Traumatic Brain Injury, and Homelessness. The application allows for a short quiz and evaluation and are administered at the end of the lesson to test knowledge and gather feedback. In addition, all modules are eligible for Continuing Education credits. MPHI worked closely with the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission to design and build the web application. The goal was to make the content, including multi-media content, easily readable. The application is designed so that content and quiz questions are easily editable, which will allow for decreased maintenance costs in the future. MPHI and our partners worked together using an agile methodology, and the project was completed on-time and on-budget.

MPHI and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) launched the electronic application process for the Michigan Drug Assistance Program (MIDAP) in April 2017. This program assists with costs for HIV-specific related medicines and vaccines. Individuals are eligible for the program when they provide:
  1. Documentation of HIV disease,
  2. Proof of residency in the state of Michigan,
  3. Proof of gross income, which cannot exceed 500% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL); FPL guidelines are in effect when MIDAP receives the completed application, and

MPHI worked with MDHHS to design, build, and test the application.  Existing business processes were used, and some business processes were improved during the course of designing the application.  The application is integrated with the State of Michigan single sign-on process, and is hosted at the State of Michigan.  Different permission levels are built into the application to protect the privacy of the data.  MPHI and MDHHS continue to work collaboratively to support and enhance the application, and respond to feedback from users and applicants.

The site is a one-stop source for all Medicaid EHR Incentive Program information, including statistics, registration information, and pages directed at healthcare professionals, hospitals, payers & associations, and patients & families. MPHI used the WordPress content management system, and worked with the client and partners to design and develop the website and present information in an easily accessible manner.

Michigan Childhood Lead Poisoning Surveillance System (MICLPS)

Centers:

MPHI and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) worked collaboratively to design and build Michigan Childhood Lead Poisoning Surveillance System (MICLPS), a web-based lab management application.  The Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program receives blood lead lab results from hundreds of clinical laboratories and portable analyzers within the State of Michigan, as well as several national labs.  Some labs are sent in an HL7 format, which are then entered directly into the application, and other labs are sent electronically via a template, and imported into the MICLPS application manually by MDHHS staff.  Once the lab results are imported into MICLPS, each record undergoes validation to ensure that all pertinent lab data is present, and address verification to ensure the patient’s address data is accurate.  Once the lab result has been validated for accuracy, and marked as ‘Done’, the lab results of all levels are then reported out to the local health departments and other entities.  The full data set is also sent to the State Data Warehouse, and imported into CDC’s HHLPSS lab processing application. The MICLPS application is integrated with the State of Michigan single sign-on process, and is hosted at the State of Michigan.  MPHI and MDHHS continue to work collaboratively to support and enhance the application.

Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan Healthy Start Data Collection System

Centers:

MPHI designed, develops, and hosts a web-based data collection tool for the Healthy Start Project, funded by the Intertribal Council of Michigan.  The tool allows you to create a client, and then add different data collection forms to the client as they progress through the program.  Only specific forms are available to different types of clients.  Permissions are configured to only allow access to data needed.  Search features allow users to search on first name, last name, site, healthy start ID, amongst others.  Data download allows sites and application admins to download all of their data in an easy-to-manipulate Excel file. The application receives imports from the State of Michigan MIHP system, which reduces the need for double data entry into both systems. MPHI continues to partner with the Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan to enhance and maintain the application. https://www.hsmidata.org
