BioSense Platform Admin Tool Requirements Discussion


The BioSense Platform features a tool giving site administrators control over how their data are shared. Thanks to a workgroup the BioSense Governance Group convened last year, CDC now has a good idea of what data-sharing capabilities users want in this new tool. Michael Coletta and other members of the team will outline the steps being taken to build the BioSense Platform Admin Tool. They also will present sketches of the requirement artifacts (e.g., context diagram, business process flows, and requirement wireframes). At the conclusion of the webinar, CDC will be asking for 6 – 9 volunteers who can spend focused time in separate meetings to finalize these artifacts and requirements.


Michael ColettaMichael Coletta worked with the Georgia Division of Public Health from 1999 through 2004 as District Epidemiologist, Knowledge Analyst and Surveillance, where he helped institute a syndromic surveillance system for the G8 Summit. He also worked as an Enhanced Surveillance Coordinator (2005 to mid-2011) for the Virginia Department of Health. He served on the ESSENCE Enhanced Surveillance Operating Group for Virginia, as master of ceremonies for the 2008 EARS conference in Boston, and as 2010/2011 chair for the International Society for Disease Surveillance Meaningful Use workgroup. He then became Lead Informatics Analyst at the National Association of County and City Health Officials in mid-2011; in mid-2013, he returned to CDC where he now serves as the BioSense Program Manager.
