CoP Call Agenda

IBIS-PH is website software that allows public health practitioners access to publicly-owned health data. The IBIS-PH Community of Practice (CoP) is the stakeholder group for the software. Monthly CoP conference calls allow CoP members to communicate with each other and the IBIS-PH contractors who provide software development and support.

Agenda Items

  • Review agenda and add items as needed...


  1. Training Videos Status Update
    • Adding an area labels layer to your map, editing GeoJSON in QGIS (Chris Wenker)
    • Modifying an IBIS map definition - choropleth groups and colors, adding new map definitions (Lois Haggard, Paul Leo)
    • Creating Dynamic Grouping Variables for an IBIS Query (Tong Zheng)
    • Wiki Formatting - When, Where and How It's Used in IBIS-View (Kim Neerings)
    • Community Health Assessment (Lois Haggard)
    • The Subversion (SVN) file repository - basics (Lois Haggard, Paul Leo)
    • HTML markup in IBIS-PH (coding our static pages, what's typical, what's possible? - Garth will outline at some point in the future, after development work is done)
  2. ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM transition for general injury and drug poisoning. I’m a member of two CSTE workgroups, it would be good to present where the workgroups are at, where the workgroups will go, and how the workgroups will get there. - Cody, Montana
  3. At the CSTE drug poisoning workgroup, I mentioned IBIS to epidemiologists from a number of jurisdictions that were very interested in adopting IBIS. I’d like to set up a presentation on the challenges and successes that Montana has had, but it would be good to have another state present their experiences too. - Cody, Montana

Standing Agenda Items:

If Time & Interest, Future Agenda Items:

  • Training - IBIS Admin Version 3.0 (will proceed when Admin 3.0 development has been completed)


  • When you submit a ticket, leave the Milestone=Unassigned and Version=Unknown and the ticket will come up on ticket report number 1 New Tickets for CoP Review
  • If you have new or open tickets please review them and be prepared to discuss them on the CoP call. You can run the {1} New Tickets for CoP Review report to see current tickets. The purposes of discussing tickets are to a) communicate an idea to the community, and b) to identify and track IBIS-PH software issues. (Note that once a ticket has been marked to be worked then that ticket is only discussed on the CoP call for the purpose of moving the effort forward.)
