Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan Healthy Start Data Collection System

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

Spirit of Community Health: Organization and Performance of Tribal Public Health Systems

Centers:

As tribal community health agencies work to strengthen their public health systems, those striving for Public Health Accreditation Board accreditation may encounter challenges due to the unique context in which they operate. Little published research exists on promising practices for tribes in this pursuit. This community-based participatory case study research project was an in-depth exploration of the infrastructure, partnerships, performance, and outcomes of one tribal public health system. The results of the study, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, explored the alignment of the 10 Essential Public Health Services (EPHS) and PHAB’s Domains with the services in this community, highlighting areas where the tribal system addressed community health needs and promoted health equity in ways that honor culture.
