Learn more about our Collaborative Requirements Development Methodology (CRDM)™.
We begin each of our projects with the end in mind, ensuring that we plan every step of a project intentionally focused on all defined needs being met. For example, we plan for system interoperability from the start of a project—that is, setting up systems to communicate seamlessly so that public health practitioners, healthcare providers and other health organizations can work together to efficiently exchange critical information.
We also plan from the beginning to make systems scalable, or able to rapidly grow to accommodate wider use or a greater number of users. By accounting for these and other crucial factors—privacy, usability, functionality, etc.—we ensure that the solutions we create are thorough and practical.
We brainstorm new concepts to advance public health information systems—from repurposing existing methods and technology to pioneering emerging approaches that can be applied to solve some of the most impactful public health informatics problems. By remaining forward-thinking, we play a part in supporting agencies’ move to more modern informatics practices.
Using data to drive better health outcomes in communities that have been institutionally marginalized is a guiding aspiration for all of our projects. Because designing systems for the status quo often reinforces existing and deeply entrenched inequities, we seek to disrupt outdated approaches by closely examining transforming health processes, ensuring that care and the resulting health outcomes are equitable for all.
