Welcome to the IBIS-PH Community of Practice - Product Management Site

IBIS-PH stands for Indicator Base Information System for Public Health. This site provides access to all of the IBIS-PH work products. In general, the IBIS-PH Community of Practice consists of any organization or individual who is interested in the dissemination of public health data.

The goal of the IBIS-PH Community is to share information on how to

  • collect and maintain public health data,
  • analyze the data,
  • present the data to the public,
  • improve health informatics in general

The Product Management portion of the IBIS-PH Community site provides

  • Project Management of the related work product milestones. This is accomplished using the Trac Roadmap engine.
  • Tracking of bugs and tasks using the Trac Ticket engine.
  • Access to all versions of all files associated with the IBIS-PH project is handled by Trac's Browse Source Subversion File Repository interfaqce.
  • A WIKI page engine that allows users to define their own custom web pages that will be served up via Trac.

Other IBIS-PH Community of Practice web resources include

  • Detailed System/Application Documentation. This includes how to install and support the applications, developer documentation, and content management user documentation.
  • Discussion Forums. vBulletin is a web based application which allows individuals to share knowledge and ideas like dealing with health data, SAS programming, web development, and IBIS-PH application specific topics.

"trac-admin yourenvdir initenv" created a new Trac environment, containing a default set of wiki pages and some sample data. This newly created environment also contains documentation to help get things started with the IBIS-PH project.

Please use the trac-admin to configure Trac to better fit IBIS-PH, especially in regard to components, versions and milestones.

TracGuide is a good place to start.
