IT Services and Public Health
Integrating information technology with public health solves infrastructure problems and allows technology to become a collaborative tool that provides timely access to high-quality and confidential information. Our IT experts can help make sure that Web-housed research data are current, comprehensive, and available—dependably and continually—to researchers, practitioners, clinicians, physicians, and the public.
- Customizing technology: We provide customized IT and technical support for the National Institute on Drug Abuse's AIDS Research Program to disseminate research findings efficiently.
- Migrating sites: Our Web developers are playing a key role in helping the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases to migrate its Web presence to a 2010 SharePoint environment. The process includes organizing and managing content inventories and creating templates, lists, and libraries within the collaborative workspace and content management system.
- Managing large content libraries: Our Web designers revamped the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors' (NASMHPD) Web site, home to the organization representing state executives responsible for the $36.7 billion public mental health service delivery system that serves 6.8 million people annually. We developed special processes to present NASMHPD's large collection of publications, webinars, and meeting presentations, which account for more than half of the site's overall content.
- Designing interactive sites: Our IT specialists created and maintain interactive Web sites and databases to support a full range of activities for the National Institute on Drug Abuse's Clinical Trials Network, including protocol development, protocol reviews, training and dissemination activities, and providing master lists of required documents.
