Developing and implementing the tools that make data analysis work for our rural health community.

CFB staff also conduct analyses on large national databases including the CDC’s National Health Examination Survey (NHANES), the American College of Surgeon’s National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB), the Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System data (SPARCS), the NYS Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS), the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP), the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), among others. Ms. Krupa serves as the BRI’s expert in data needs involving the Bassett Healthcare Network electronic medical record system (Epic). Ms. Kern is currently earning Epic credentials and is also trained in Python® and the R® software language, as well as graphic design using Canva. All CFB staff are proficient in Statistical Analysis Software (SAS) as well as a variety of survey/data collection platforms and database programs, including REDCap as the preferred HIPAA-compliant data management and data collection system. Staff also supported electronic data collection for several continuing BRI studies as well as new studies. Online survey platforms were created for studies of practitioner and nurse well-being and a study of osteoporosis treatment patterns among orthopedic surgeons.
