Response requested by July 12th.
Oregon State Public Health - in collaboration with Local Health Departments - is developing a new Web-based tool that will access, analyze and display Oregon data for community health assessments. It will also be a powerful tool for supporting grant proposals, analyzing trends in key public health issues, writing reports, and generating data for program planning and policy development. The Oregon Public Health Assessment Tool (OPHAT) will be available to public health users at the state, local and tribal levels and will replace VistaPHw. OPHAT is scheduled for release in mid-September 2012. VistaPHw will continue to be available until OPHAT is fully functional.
Your help is needed to ensure that OPHAT will be a quality product that meets the needs of public health users in Oregon. Please volunteer to participate in user testing of OPHAT prior to release. You can sign up for one of three training and testing sessions on August 23rd, 24th or 28th from 1-5pm. The first half of the session will consist of training in how to use this new tool. As a tester, you will receive an account that will allow you to be one of the first OPHAT users. You may participate in one of two ways: 1) attend in person at the Portland State Office Building, or 2) attend via webinar.
Please RSVP to Juanita Heimann (Juanita.A.Heimann at state.or.us<mailto:Juanita.A.Heimann at state.or.us>, 971-673-1267) by July 12th. Let her know which of the three dates you will be attending and whether you'll participate in person or by webinar. Please include your agency affiliation and position.
Anyone affiliated with a state, county or tribal public health agency, or other public or non-profit agency engaged in public health assessment and research in Oregon is eligible. No prior experience with VistaPHw is needed.
