Public health data management: Gain control of your data

July 27, 2023
A doctor sits at a desk and uses case management software on her laptop to improve public health data management.

In today’s technology-driven world, public sector agencies rely heavily on data to identify health threats, track disease outbreaks, and assess the impact of interventions. However, as data volumes grow, managing and analyzing this information can be challenging for agencies with limited resources. 

How can public health agencies gain better control of their data to maximize their impact, even with limited resources? 

The answer is robust case management software. By harnessing the power of flexible technology that can grow with your data and reporting needs, your public health agency can streamline data management, make data-driven decisions, and drive positive change in your community.

In this post, we’ll explore how your organization can take control of your data and revolutionize data collection and reporting by investing in the right software. 

The solution to public health data management needs

For public health agencies navigating vast amounts of health-related data, case management software is a game-changer. Quality, versatile software like Bonterra Program Management’s Case Management solution can:

  • Keep track of electronic health records (EHRs)
  • Allow for disease surveillance systems
  • Provide outbreak management tools
  • And more 

Plus, when you choose software with customizable features, you can tailor it to your team’s specific needs and workflows. This makes your case management system a powerful tool that can streamline data collection, management, analysis, and reporting. 

Benefits of flexible case management software

By adopting flexible case management software, your public health agency can unlock numerous benefits that improve your data management practices. Take a look at the top three ways the right software can help your organization: 

1. Collect safe, quality data

Above all else, your data needs to be compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and system and organization controls (SOC 2). Choosing technology that complies with these regulatory standards, like Bonterra Case Management, helps ensure patient protection and privacy.  

On top of securing patient data, case management software can enhance the overall quality of your data. Using standardized data collection forms and protocols, your software can improve the accuracy and completeness of your data, which is essential for effective disease surveillance and outbreak management. 

2. Improved data access and analysis

As a leader in public health, make sure your case management software can seamlessly work with other marketplace applications that are a critical piece of your statistical data analysis puzzle. When all of your systems work together, you can:

  • More effectively manage your data and quickly get access to the whole picture. 
  • Use powerful data analysis tools to identify trends, patterns, and risk factors related to public health. 
  • Use this information to inform public health policies and programs, helping prevent and control disease outbreaks. 

Software like Bonterra Case Management provides a single source of truth for all teams across all departments so they can make data-driven decisions that have real-life consequences. 

3. Better results for your team

By streamlining data collection and management processes in one centralized system, case management software can help your team reduce the time and resources needed to administer and analyze data. This leads to improved efficiency, less time spent on administrative tasks, and more time doing the work that matters.

Plus, flexible software facilitates collaboration between different departments and agencies, enabling public health agencies to share data and work together to respond to health threats. 

In fact, Bonterra Case Management’s closed-loop referrals feature (available in select regions) allows public health agencies and partner organizations to search for partners, make referrals, and collaborate with other organizations to ensure patients get the comprehensive care they need.
