31        The current NJSHAD system (NJSHAD II) was adopted and adapted by the New Jersey
32                Department of Health (NJDOH) in 2007-2008.  It is based
33                on the Utah Department of Health's <a href="" class="Bold" target="_blank">
34                Indicator-Based Information System for Public Health</a> (IBIS-PH) and replaced NJDOH's original health data query system, NJSHAD I.<br/><br/>
36                In 2001, the NJDOH Center for Health Statistics (CHS) adopted the Missouri Department
37                of Health's <a href="" class="Bold" target="_blank">Missouri Information for Community
38                Assessment</a> (MICA) online query system and adapted it for New Jersey.  The SHAD I
39                system contained birth, death, matched infant death-birth,
40                fetal death, and marriage data and allowed users to make custom data tables and map
41                outcomes at the county level.  However, the MICA-based system as implemented was not able
42                to adequately handle survey data, such as data from the NJ Behavioral Risk Factor Survey. 
43                In 2006, work was begun to find a satisfactory replacement for NJSHAD I that could
44                query survey data in addition to population data like vital events.<br/><br/>
46                In 2007, it was decided that Utah's IBIS-PH system would be able to do that and much more.
47                IBIS-PH has query capabilities and it was also developed such that web content
48                (tabulated numeric data, graphs, and public health contextual information) could be stored
49                in a database.  Web pages are generated dynamically from the data stored in the IBIS-PH database. 
50                This allows for bits of information to be updated without requiring re-publishing of a static webpage. 
51                In addition, it allows for maintenance of the pages to be distributed among 
52                multiple programs in the organization.  Significant assistance in database design, database
53                data entry interface, and web reporting was provided by Garth Braithwaite and Paul Leo through
54                a contract with Software Technology Group, Inc. in Salt Lake City, Utah and by Lois Haggard of
55                the <a href="" class="Bold" target="_blank">New Mexico Department of Health</a>, formerly of the Utah Department of Health. 
56                <!--The current health indicator content is produced and maintained
57                by over 2 NJDOH staff throughout the Department. --><br/><br/>

61                NJSHAD is a collaborative effort involving multiple offices and divisions in the New Jersey Department of Health. Funding for NJSHAD II implementation and enhancement is provided in part through the NJDOH Consumer, Environmental, and Occupational Health
62                Services' <a href="" class="Bold" target="_blank">Environmental Public Health
