Developing Integrated Child Health Information Systems: Promoting the use of Health Information Technology: The purpose of this grant activity is to provide an evidence base of best practices to assist stakeholders (public health agencies, private health care providers, and parents) in establishing and maintaining the health information technology infrastructure to support integrated child health information systems. An integrated child health information system allows States to monitor all children's access to care and health outcomes and to provide follow-up for children with special health care needs as identified through newborn screening. In the past several years the Office of Data and Program Development has collaborated with the Division of Services for Children with Special Health Care Needs to provide state-level funding for the development of innovative models that build technological data capacity and utilization through the development of integrated child information systems. By building data capacity through data linkages and data integration, children's health services can improve the timely provision of accurate and comprehensive records of health care status and utilization. The ultimate goal is the accessibility of comprehensive health data (Child Health Profile or electronic health record) to the medical home. Integrated child health information systems developed by public health departments are uniquely poised in the field of health information technology to adapt to the requirements of an Electronic Health Record for children. Some states have begun to build the necessary infrastructure to achieve data integration and linkage through a collaborative effort with the Maternal and Child Health Bureau. However, concerns about information sharing, data control, privacy, local legislative barriers and the need to re-engineer information systems, such as implementing web-based electronic birth record systems using the format of the 2003 Standard Birth Certificates, remain as barriers to integration in some state/local environments around the country. Changing political environments and dedication to integrating information systems also threaten the ability of public health agencies to maintain their integrated systems. The Office of Data and Program Development is seeking to ensure the national expansion of this effort and support for the President's Health Information Technology initiative by providing evidence that integrated child health information systems improve the health care service delivery for children through the use of a Child Health Profile. Applicants applying for funds to document best practices for integrated health data systems (minimally: Newborn Dried Blood Spot and Hearing Screening, Vital Registration, and Immunization; optionally, Lead) are expected to outline project proposals that address the development, collection, and analysis of outcome measures for the purpose of establishing the efficacy of a Child Health Profile derived from an integrated child health information system. It is expected that the outcome measures will focus on the 1) timely establishment of an electronic record for every live birth in that state using the format of the 2003 Standard Birth Certificate and for every child who interacts with the above mentioned systems of care, 2) timely follow-up for those who are confirmed with conditions mandated by the state-sponsored newborn screening programs, 3) extent to which the Child Health Profile supports the medical home via communication, care coordination, and information sharing.
