New Mexico's NM-IBIS Website was implemented using software developed by the Utah Department of Health. The software was downloaded from Utah's IBIS Community of Practice website and software repository.
As with any information system implementation, high-level organizational support is crucial. Executive managers in New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) have provided not only support but have succeeded in creating an organizational culture in which data are used for evidence-based decision-making.
The current health indicator content has been produced and maintained by NMDOH staff throughout the Department. Data Stewards are responsible for providing the datasets that are used in the query system.
An NM-IBIS Advisory Committee provides guidance on NM-IBIS content and priorities.
Special thanks to
The Salt Lake City-Based IBIS software developers,
In 2002, and again in 2007, New Mexico was awarded funding through the CDC's Cooperative Agreement to Support State Assessment Initiatives (CFDA # 93.283). This funding has suppored, in part, the activities of the NMDOH Community Health Assessment Program, under the direction of Corazon Halasan, and now Lois Haggard. It has been essential to the implementation of IBIS in New Mexico.
States or others wishing to adopt the IBIS-PH technology should contact Tong Zheng at (801) 538-6458 or email@example.com, or visit the IBIS Community of Practice homepage at www.ibisph.org
