Uber Ops To Lead Florida In PHLIP ETOR Salmonella Project February 12, 2011Posted by gonzalezloumiet in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, APHL, Data Integration, Health Care, HIT, Interoperability.
February 12, 2011 – Tallahassee, Florida – The Uber Operations team will be leading the Florida Department of Health in the Public Health Laboratory Interoperability Project (PHLIP) – Electronic Test Order & Result (ETOR) Salmonella project.
The ETOR Salmonella project will facilitate the orders of Salmonella tests by a state public health agency/lab to the CDC. The test order will flow through the CDC Public Health Laboratory Interoperability Solutions and Solution Architecture (PHLISSA) infrastructure. Once the test is resulted in the CDC’s Laboratory Information Management System, Starlims, the result message will flow out through PHLISSA and back to the state public health agency/lab. The Florida RnR Hub will have a key role as the states will use this for message transport facilitation. Other states involved in the project are Iowa and Utah. The project is sponsored by the Association of Public Health Laboratories.
The project kicked off this past week. We look forward to leading Florida and will update this blog post as we progress throughout the year.
