Transforming Public Health through Healthcare Innovation

vxVistA’s tailor-made health information system provides public health organizations with the tools necessary to collect and analyze vital statistics with far greater efficiency, elevating prevention and screening programs to superior levels of effectiveness. The data can then be reported to state and federal registries as required.

  • Health Screenings
  • Newborn screenings
  • Health reports
  • Tobacco control and prevention
  • Childhood vaccine order management and inventory distribution
  • Data collection and analysis
  • Vital records, as well as data on morbidity and reportable diseases data
  • Epidemiology and surveillance activities on injuries, chronic diseases, and communicable diseases
  • Perinatal events or risk factors
  • Cancer surveillance
  • Syndromic Surveillance
  • Injury control and prevention
  • Obesity prevention
  • Sexually transmitted disease counseling and partner notification

From initial consultation to post deployment, DSS provides ongoing technical assistance and training to support VistA modifications, commercial software integrations and vxVistA implementations.
