History and Acknowledgments

The current NJSHAD system was adopted and adapted by the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) in 2007-2008. It is based on the Utah Department of Health's Indicator-Based Information System for Public Health (IBIS-PH). Significant assistance in database design, database data entry interface, and web reporting was provided by Garth Braithwaite, Paul Leo, Lois Haggard, and Kim Neerings through a contract with Software Technology Group, Inc. in Salt Lake City, Utah.

EPHT NJSHAD is a collaborative effort involving multiple offices and divisions in the New Jersey Department of Health. Funding is provided in part through the NJDOH Consumer, Environmental, and Occupational Health Services' Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) Cooperative Agreement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. NJSHAD's contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

States or others wishing to adopt the IBIS-PH technology should visit the IBIS-PH Community of Practice for more information.
