Design of California's Response and Surveillance System for Childhood Lead Exposures (RASSCLE II) System

Project Timeline: 7/1/2006 through 6/30/2008

In partnership with CDPH and CDC, Sequoia Foundation designed the database structure, and the front-end interface of California’s statewide web-based childhood lead poisoning surveillance system RASSCLE II. Sequoia staff activities included: Developing design documentation, conducting end-user requirements gathering, and serving as the Program Manager during the development phase of the project. Sequoia staff capitalized on their thorough understanding of end-user workflows and needs to employ a holistic approach for the requirements gathering and development phases, resulting in a successful project. Subsequent to project completion, the CDC selected the RASSCLE II system as the basis for the national lead poisoning prevention application that has been deployed in several states so far.
