Electronic Management of Environmental Analytical Data

Anand Mudambi USEPANational Environmental Monitoring Conference 2011 August 16, 2011

1Slide2

Data Management Issues

Multiple databases, processes, procedures, and methods for the same informationConsistent and stable business driven framework needs to be prescribed with all data generated registered into an Agency catalogue08/16/2011

2Slide3

Data Management Goals

Need to develop and implement: paperless data generation paperless data transfer/exchange review and management (input and retrieval) systems for all types of project data (e.g., field, chain-of-custody, analytical)

3Slide4

General Environmental Data Flow- Need to Go Electronic

08/16/2011

4Slide5

Some Data Management System Concepts

Need to build systems that are used regularly Same systems for regular and emergency useSystem should be capable of being scaled up or down (e.g., number of samples, reporting of QC data)08/16/2011

5Slide6

Data Management Frameworks: Examples

EPA’s Environmental Response Laboratory Network and Water Laboratory AllianceEPA’s Contract Laboratory ProgramUSACE ADR.net08/16/2011

6Slide7

General Environmental Data Flow: Needs for Going Electronic

Standard formats for electronic project requirements.Standards/templates for field information. Standard formats for reporting analytical data.Standard procedures for reviewing analytical data.Standard formats for reporting reviewed analytical data

08/16/2011

7Slide8

Standard Format Requirements

Non-Proprietary Formats (e.g., XML)Use international standards for Valid Values (e.g., ISO, IEEE, ASTM)Guidance/Specification/Requirement Documents 08/16/2011

8Slide9

First Needs: Data Capture Requirements

Need to develop the following:Standard Specification for Laboratory Instrument Output files (e.g., NIST’s AnIML)Standard Specifications for Laboratory Information Management Systems (e.g., as an RFP)Standard Electronic Versions for Measurement Quality Objectives (e.g., ERLN WebEDR MQO Template)

08/16/2011

9Slide10

Followed By:Adoption of Standard Reporting Formats/Guidance

Laboratory Datae.g., Staged Electronic Data Deliverable (SEDD) for EPA (ERLN, CLP, GLPNO) and USACE programs, ERLN EDDsChain-of-Custody Informatione.g., WLA Response Plan (Appendix H)

08/16/2011

10Slide11

Then: Data Reporting Formats/Tools

EPA and NISTDeveloping an electronic deliverable that contains all laboratory and instrument data in a non-proprietary format for archival and retrieval (SEDD with AnIML)EPA Forms GeneratorGenerating different reporting formats from the same electronic deliverable (e.g., CLP and CLP – like forms)

08/16/2011

11Slide12

Leads to:Data Assessment

Data Analysis or AssessmentConfidence in the reliability of data and ability to use appropriately are importantConsistent application of the data life-cycle and enforcement of data quality policies for greater confidenceScientific Integrity

08/16/2011

12Slide13

Facilitating Data Assessment byAutomating Data Review

Example Data Review Software EPA ERLN WebEDR, EPA CLP EXES, USACE Automated Data Review.NETNeed Specifications for Data Review Software

08/16/2011

13Slide14

Facilitating Data Assessment by Identifying Data Quality

Capturing Data Review Steps In End User Databasese.g., EPA’s Guidance for Labeling Validated Analytical Data 08/16/2011

14Slide15

Why do all this:Benefits

Ease of data exchangeEase of data storage and retrievalAllows for verifying reported data (current and in future)Allows for reuse of data

08/16/2011

15Slide16

Getting to an Electronic WorldNeed to get rid of the “Not-Invented-Here-Syndrome” (i.e., adoption of agency specific standards/systems)

Need all parties (Federal and State Labs) to cooperate and adopt a set of data management standards that can be used by all parties 08/16/2011
