Description: The Spirometry Longitudinal Data Analysis (SPIROLA) software is an integrated visual and quantitative technology to aid in monitoring lung function in individuals participating in spirometry-based health monitoring programs. SPIROLA enables the user to monitor spirometry tests` quality grades and longitudinal data precision for a monitoring program. This monitoring also provides a basis on which to determine an appropriate limit of longitudinal decline in individuals.

SPIROLA requires a spirometry database to store spirometry data. SPIROLA can use Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel, text files, Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Server, or any Open Database Connectivity (ODBC)-compliant database to store spirometry data. In addition to the spirometry database, this technology utilizes Microsoft Access 2010 to automatically create an Administrative Database. This database stores questionaire results and intervention plans, which may contain Personally Identifiable Information (PII)/Personal Health Information (PHI). The user has the ability to password protect this database.
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
