      • Purpose: These data provide information pertinent to the safety of food products prepared by retail food establishments in Utah.
      • Use: These data can provide an understanding of failures in protective systems that cause foodborne infections. These data can also be used to monitor trends over time and identify communities at a higher risk of infection.
      • DataSources: The Utah EPHT Network receives restaurant safety data from the from the Environmental Sanitation Program in the Bureau of Epidemiology at the Utah Department of Health. Salmonella, Campylobacter and Shiga Toxin-producing E. coli data comes from the Disease Respone, Evaluation, Assessment and Monitoring Program in the Bureau of Epidemiology at the Utah Department of Health; Population Estimates: National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) through a collaborative agreement with the U.S. Census Bureau, IBIS Version 2016; and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
      • DataLimitations: Not all cases of infection may be reported or detected, therefore the number of actual cases may be underreported.
      • Standards: Data from laboratories are converted into a standardized format. The data are validated through a standardized process.
      • ReportingProtocols:
        • supplinf: Escherichia coli O157:H7 has been nationally notifiable since 1994. Per the Communicable Disease Rule R386-702-3, health care providers and laboratories are required to report salmonellosis and campylobacter cases to the Bureau of Epidemiology or a local health department.
      • Integrity
      • Additional: All population estimates and projections apply to July 1 of the selected year.

      • Constraints:
        • Access: Public Health Professionals may only access Utah Tracking Network data through Secure IBIS-PH or in any other way after submitting a complete application as contained in the document Third Party Application for Access to Secure IBIS-PH for Public Health Professionals. Similarly, researchers must submit a complete application as contained in the document Third Party Application for Access to Secure IBIS-PH for Research Projects. The SRB does not serve as an IRB. Applications requiring an IRB must submit for IRB approval separately. The applications can be submitted concurrently, but the SRB will not grant data access until they have received proof that the IRB has approved the research project. The SRB may conditionally approve access to Secure IBIS-PH pending IRB approval. The SRB ensures that the research proposal meets all of the data owner(s)’s requirements.
