Cause of Death Training | A Case Study

Cause of Death Training
States struggle with inadequate Cause of Death (COD) reporting. The causes are often lack of training on proper COD standards for reporting, not understanding the impact of the data, and the misconception that proper reporting will take too much time. Sadly, the ultimate result of poor COD reporting is the loss of American lives. With two pilot training projects, QuatumMark developed and tested methodologies, and found remarkable success in improved participation, ease of reporting, and quality of COD data.

Nevada State Department of Wildlife | A Case Study

Nevada State Department of Wildlife
The State of Nevada needed help in creating the Nevada Wildlife Data System (NWDS), a web-based system that would centralize the issuing of hunting and fishing licenses, boat registration and titles, and citations and revocations. The goal was to improve customer service, provide fiscal and inventory control, and provide better information to help manage natural resources. This meant we needed to develop the requirements and plans necessary to facilitate a vendor selection, system design and implementation.

DMV | A Case Study

DMV | A Case Study
The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) faced demands from the state’s rapid growth. The “new DMV” concept was customer-focused, easier, faster, more straightforward. Obstacles included Nevada’s previous large-scale multi-year project failures, a history of aborted DMV projects in western states, and major changes in management (2 governors, 3 heads of DMV). Despite the challenges, the project was successful, winning national recognition by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA).

Immunization | A Case Study

Immunization | A Case Study
The State of Nevada needed a 3-year Strategic Immunization Plan, and the main goal of the plan was to improve immunization rates throughout Nevada. It needed to be extremely detailed on the strategy side, think about the implementation phase, and align to CDC standards. Significant focus was on improving the actual infrastructure of the Registry, including the enabling technology, so that the solution created would be user friendly and sustainable for years to come.

Vital Records | A Case Study

National Vital RecordsVital Records in the U.S. is a major player in disease prevention and overall public health, but it still faces a major problem: lack of efficiency, accuracy, and timeliness of data reporting. State Vital Records Offices often use outdated electronic systems, utilize time-consuming methods of data collection, and struggle to receive thorough and timely information from stakeholders. Without good data, the Centers for Disease Control(CDC) is unable to provide accurate statistics and disease prevention solutions.

Marijuana Industry | A Case Study

Before 2013, Nevada allowed individuals to apply for a medical marijuana card, but the only way for individuals to legally obtain marijuana was to grow it themselves. This led to a rise in illegal growing and distribution.

Nevada passed Senate Bill 374 to combat this allowing individuals to apply for and obtain a certificate to operate medical marijuana establishments.
The goal: to provide medical marijuana card holders a safe, reliable, and government regulated place to purchase product.

Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Agency | A Case Study

Because of changes in Medicaid, due to the Affordable Care Act, Nevada State funding to the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Agency (SAPTA) was being cut, as well as funding for implementing centralized billing and a change of computer systems. This meant the SAPTA program was in urgent need for a new roadmap to continue to operate. Any delays would leave the State with insufficient funds to pay for any/all services rendered.
