Innovations

Monthly/Annual Reports

Together with UDSMR, NYSMSC created a format for a monthly report that provides an update on all activity in the database. Among the information provided are the following:

  • New Patient/Case registrations
  • Number of Follow-Up forms processed
  • Number of forms with missing data that required intervention and amount of time it took
  • Total number of cases & missing data interventions by site
  • Number of interventions not responded to (Outstanding)
  • Custom query hours consumed per month and YTD
  • Follow up assessments not processed in timely fashion by site.

Online Data Entry

In order to be more user friendly as well as accessible, the database was uploaded to the Internet. Advantages of this move include:
  • All data entry performed on the Internet
  • Anytime/Anywhere data access by the sites and by Buffalo Coordinating Center
  • Enhanced data integrity and validity checks
  • Enhanced database integrity


Enhanced database integrity

A new function added to the online database allows members to extract information via the Crystal Reports Enterprise Engine. The new capabilities include the following:
  • Sites able to query their own data
  • Pre-defined standard queries
  • Capability to define ad hoc queries
  • Queries may be shared between sites
