Michigan Childhood Lead Poisoning Surveillance System (MICLPS)

Michigan Childhood Lead Poisoning Surveillance System (MICLPS)

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.

The Rape Prevention and Education program promotes primary prevention initiatives and supports local programs to address sexual violence through education, training, community mobilization, coalition building, and policy and social norms change efforts. Michigan’s RPE program funds five local programs through the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services’ Sexual Violence Prevention (SVP) Grants Program. MPHI's Center for Healthy Communities is the program evaluator for RPE. The RPE evaluation examines how sexual violence prevention strategies were implemented across the state, as well as what changes in knowledge, attitudes, behaviors, policies, and practices have happened as a result of implementing these strategies.

Maternal Child Health Block Grants Needs Assessment Facilitation and Support

Maternal Child Health Block Grants Needs Assessment Facilitation and Support

Maternal Child Health Block Grants Needs Assessment Facilitation and Support

Centers:

MPHI facilitates Michigan’s needs assessment activities under the federal Maternal Child Health Block Grant (Title V). The Title V Block Grant supports states in identifying and addressing the most pressing needs among women, infants, children, and adolescents. In order to guide their efforts, states complete a large needs assessment every five years, as well as annual updates. MPHI’s Center for Healthy Communities (CHC) supports the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services in assessing the state’s Maternal Child Health through designing and facilitating both the five year and annual needs assessment activities. CHC’s approach to needs assessment under the Block Grant is participatory, relies on multiple levels and types of data, and engages partners from across the maternal child health system in interpreting data, identifying needs, and setting priorities. CHC guided the state-level needs assessment in 2015 using this approach, and guided all 45 local health departments through a needs assessment process in 2017. Other assessment activities have included identifying strengths and gaps in consumer engagement and establishing a performance monitoring strategy.

This project provides information, education, technical assistance, and peer support to families of children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) and the professionals who serve them. MI F2F has three primary goals: 1) promote optimal health for CYSHCN in Michigan, 2) ensure that families of CYSHCN will partner in decision-making at all levels, and 3) facilitate access to effective health delivery systems by meeting the health information and support needs of CYSHCN and their families. The project also focuses on the number of CYSHCN and families, particularly from under-represented and diverse communities, who are provided skill development opportunities, so they can partner at all levels of decision-making.

MPHI’s Center for Child and Family Health (CCFH) houses the Michigan Child Death Review, Sudden Unexpected Infant Death Case Registry, and Fetal and Infant Mortality Review. Collectively, these projects utilize fatality surveillance to better understand how and why children die, and use the findings to help prevent child deaths. CCFH provides technical assistance to facilitate these efforts with both local- and state-level policy makers. In addition, CCFH staff train front-line personnel across the state on effective review processes, infant safe sleep and death scene investigation practices.
