Andy's Data Blog: Random musings from a data nerd

What do hanging chads, Billie Mays, and the space-time continuum have in common with the new fillable SUIDIRF? Not that much it turns out.

by CFPS Epi, Andy Woster

Have you ever spent hours working on a project only to have the dog chew it up right before turning it in? Been to a home closing only to have your pen explode and cover your new home mortgage documents in ink? How about spilling coffee all over the Sudden Unexplained Infant Death Investigation Reporting Form (SUIDIRF) you just spent so much time completing? Even Billy Mays, were he still alive, would find these scenarios cringeworthy! If any of these have ever happened to you, you understand what a time burden it can be to go back and correct.
Now you can put that fear behind you when you or your investigators are completing Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID) investigations. Introducing the new and improved, entirely electronic, and completely fillable SUIDIRF! It’s a less-than-revolutionary way to complete your scene investigations and capture all of your relevant investigation details! Yes, like a DeLorean reaching 88 miles per hour the CDC raced through time and has finally come to rest in the world of 21st century investigative methodology. Great Scott! Emmit L. Brown would be proud.
Like the extinction of the hanging chad, gone are the days of your co-workers and partners interpreting your checklists to decipher which responses are actually selected. With both checkboxes and fillable text entry fields alike, you can now provide your investigation details like a pro. Eliminate the need for expensive, confidential file storage systems or complicated document shredding processes. No more intimidating visits from your agency’s Records Compliance Officer, looming over you in a not-so-subtly- threatening way! Yes, Biff, someone is home! Complete the form, save your work, and be on your way!
Replace your outdated tech in an eco-conscious way and let the new fillable SUIDIRF revolutionize your investigations the way Mr. Fusion did for Doc Brown. Just remember as you wander haphazardly through this new world of investigative tools to watch out for sharks!
