The PRIME ReportStream project is the part of the Pandemic Ready Interoperable Modernization Effort that works with state and local public health departments. The project is a joint effort between the CDC and USDS. Currently, we are focusing on the problem of delivering COVID-19 test data to public health departments. Later, we will work on other tools to analyze and explore this data and different types of health data. See the PRIME ReportStream website (https://reportstream.cdc.gov) for further details.
PRIME ReportStream a sibling project to PRIME SimpleReport which is better way to report COVID-19 rapid tests.
PRIME ReportStream is a member of the Open CDC community.
Public health departments (PHDs) rely on accurate, timely data to fulfill day to day-operations to make long-term strategic decisions. Between the time when they receive report files from reporting entities like laboratories and point of care centers, to taking action on this data, there are many barriers and challenges. ReportStream aims to provide the infrastructure and tools to address these challenges.
Our vision is to help public health systems make faster, more effective decisions. We want to both improve the speed of receiving data to action, as well as increase the quality and effectiveness of actions they can take.
- Senders of data
- Healthcare institutions that generate data (e.g. reports) that needs to be reported to public health departments
- Senders may include traditional (hospital, labs) and non-traditional (POC apps) organizations
- Epidemiologists who rely on health data to take regular actions
- Senior stakeholders who make executive decisions using aggregate health data
- IT teams who have to support epidemiologists and external stakeholders integrating with the PHD
- PHDs may include state, county, city, and tribal organizations
