Worker health data solutions

We offer an extensive history of creating and managing health data registries and complete health data solutions for both current and historical workers. With our proven track record, we can tailor a project from beginning to end for your organization’s unique medical data management needs—no matter if it includes thousands of workers or just a handful.

We have managed health registries and complete health data solutions for a number of federal agencies and organizations, such as DOE, NRC, CDC, OSHA, EPA and NIH. Here are a few examples:

National Supplemental Screening Program

Through the National Supplemental Screening Program or NSSP—managed by ORAU since 2005—DOE provides exposure-based, medical screenings to former energy workers. Eligible workers include those from eight DOE sites and sites with no other assigned DOE Former Worker Program (FWP) as well as FWP-referral participants living outside their screening area.

More than 21,000 eligible workers have participated in these screenings that are designed to identify certain occupational diseases such as respiratory illnesses or cancer. These tests also made more than 85 percent of those participating in the program aware of previously undiagnosed, yet addressable, non-occupational health conditions, such as elevated blood sugar or blood pressure.

By managing numerous worker health databases, ORAU provides support to DOE and other agencies in the assessment of worker health and safety trends. This robust collection of data includes annually-updated analyses of the information as more records are added to the each database. Information gleaned from millions of occupational health records can help DOE set future policy and determine how to address emerging issues or concerns. These databases, provided through the ORISE worker health data center, also include information that can be studied by researchers and viewed by workers and the public.

ORAU developed the Performance Improvement Management System (PIMS) to serve as a technology software solution for the VHA’s Comprehensive Emergency Management Program. The integrated, flexible software system provides a consistent and efficient approach to plan, develop, evaluate and improve emergency management activities throughout the VHA.

This system helps the VHA in response to local emergencies and national disasters. The volunteer management application in PIMS serves as a tool for registration and management of deployable emergency personnel and tracking of prerequisite qualifications, such as professional credentials, occupational health requirements and training to provide emergency coordinators information on volunteer availability at each VA medical center. Overall, this helps the VHA emergency managers respond effectively to staffing needs at hardest hit locations.
