Agenda for the Call Overview of NNPHI’s Cooperative Agreement and Project Opportunity Overview of Project Concept and Scope of Work CFP key items Questions & Answers
NNPHI’s COAG and Project Opportunity Umbrella Cooperative Agreement Leadership support for NNPHI Partnership with OSTLTS Collaboration with national partners: NPHPSP Collaboration with numerous CDC CIOs 2012 Innovations in Public Health Policy Competition Addressing Policy Barriers for State and Local Health Departments when Implementing PCSI
Project Concept and Scope of Work Gustavo Aquino Associate Director for Program Integration National Center for HIV, Hepatitis, STD and TB Prevention, CDC
Project Concept Program Collaboration and Service Integration (PCSI) is a cross cutting goal of CDC's National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) to strengthen collaborative work across disease areas and integrate services that are provided by related programs. As the PCSI strategy is being implemented by state and local health departments, various policy challenges are being encountered.
Project Scope of Work Developing a national inventory of public health laws and policies by jurisdiction that effects the delivery of holistic, integrated prevention services. Examples Public Health Reporting Permissible Disclosure Data Confidentiality Protecting Public Health Policies on surveillance data use and data security and confidentiality Compatibility of state law/policy with recommendations for Partner Services Programs for HIV Infection, Syphilis, Gonorrhea, and Chlamydial Infection
Project Scope of Work Developing a summary by jurisdiction that highlights strategies, recommendations and best practices that were used to address these specific public health laws and policies (e.g. legal changes or policy changes).
Local Example Assessing the legal challenges of data sharing across HIV, TB, STD and viral hepatitis within the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) Jennifer Fuld PCSI Coordinator Division of Disease Control New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene
Current NYC PCSI Initiative 3 year CDC funded demonstration grant Year 1: Oct 2010 – Sept 2011 Conducted Needs Assessment –Reviewed epi data –Interviewed DOHMH staff –Interviewed community providers Formed PCSI committees Developed PCSI Plan Years 2 & 3: Oct 2011 – Sept 2013 Implement PCSI Plan –Data Sharing –Training/Education –Service Integration Build internal partners & external stakeholders Evaluate activities Years 4+: Oct 2013 onwards Ensure sustainability of internal collaborations Build on & continue PCSI activities

PCSI Data Sharing To link/match records from disease surveillance registries to conduct retrospective epidemiologic analyses (de-identified aggregate data) To share identifying information about individual cases, or person-level surveillance data, across programs for case management – Co-infection information at person level – Locating information – Demographics – Risk factors

Developed out of PCSI needs assessment – Staff need clarification on current laws and policies – Distinguish state and local law—statutes, regulations and rules from internal DOHMH policies regarding use of surveillance data – Identify issues of access vs. use – Provide opportunity for discussion to increase data sharing Limited to – PCSI diseases HIV/AIDS, STD (syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea) TB, hepatitis B & C – Surveillance data – Sharing internally (within DOHMH) Project Background
Scope of Project Collaboration with NYC DOHMH Chief Privacy Officer/General Counsel Identify data sharing needs within DOHMH PCSI programs Review history of laws and regulations Analyze current NYS and NYC laws and impact on data sharing Recommend changes to increase data sharing Serve as a springboard for data sharing conversations across programs
