- Introduction – Brian Lee – 10 minutes
- Development of Data Technical Standards and Gap Analysis and for the Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Registry 30 day Follow-Up Data – Sallyann Coleman King and Jason Bonander – 20 minutes
The Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Registry initiated in 2004 as a state-based registry to measure and track acute stroke care with a focus on quality improvement to improve inpatient care. Through the current work in transitions of care, there was a need for a more comprehensive understanding of what occurs in the early days to weeks after patients leave the hospital. This project supported an evaluation and gap analysis of the current data collection tools being utilized in several states. The technical specifications created through this funding could be tailored to suit the needs of other programs across the agency for use in their funding announcements thereby ensuring accountability, reducing redundancies, addressing system usability and data security, improving the quality of surveillance data, and providing maximal impact.

- Dietary Supplement Imaging in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey – Jerry Del Rosso and Jaime Gahche – 20 minutes
The project explored the use of digital imaging technology to capture supplement container information in a set of photographic images. In addition, technology has advanced to where optical character recognition (OCR) of non-flat small documents can correctly identify 92.4% of characters. This advance allows for the supplement name, manufacturer, address, and nutrition label printed the supplement container to be captured electronically, eliminating the need for manual entry. This would greatly reduce the effort by NHANES program staff from having to obtain the label from the manufacturer, distributor or internet.To view the full project description, click here.
