About Us


Missouri Breaks Industries is a small Indian-owned medical firm located on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. It is centrally located and primarily works and employs people from a Federal Labor Surplus area – specifically the Federal Indian Reservations of North and South Dakota. Missouri Breaks industries is qualified under 48 CFR 3-380.5 as a “Buy Indian” business to conduct research of medical problems and to translate and disseminate information learned through its research to healthcare providers, tribal leaders, and community members.
It is the mission of Missouri Breaks Industries to promote research as a tool that will create the opportunity for communities and individuals to choose a healthier quality of life through support, personal involvement, education, self-disclosure, and connectedness to rural, tribal, scientific, medical, and psychological communities at large.
MBIRI personnel collaborate and support medical staff from the Tribal, Indian Health Services, private facilities and State Health Departments. Medical staff serving in the areas of projects conducted by MBIRI is briefed frequently regarding the activities of MBIRI personnel and significant results from ongoing studies. MBIRI staff participates in local and Tribal health fairs whenever possible.
The MBIRI staff meets routinely with the Tribal Councils, and their health committees to present health issues, the importance of research, and to promote them as partners in guiding the goals and objectives for future health research and delivery. Resolutions of support are sought from the Tribal Councils prior to any research projects taking place.
In order to promote health research, MBIRI has an agreement with the Presentation Nursing College, which has satellite facilities, or outreach programs, at both Cheyenne River and Pine Ridge Reservations, to mentor nursing students in the importance and the opportunities of research on the reservations and rural communities. Missouri Breaks promotes collaboration between Universities, Tribal, State and local governments, research groups and the community to enhance opportunities for long term solutions to improving health and quality of life.

SERVICES

Field Services

MBIRI personnel are proficient in the many details that make a field clinic successful. Staff members include fluent Lakota speakers, personnel specializing in Grant management and dedicated to working with IRB’s to insure complete disclosure of project goals, plans and activities. Other staff members specialize in the morbidity and mortality component of research; data collection of psychosocial and quality of life instruments; data collection of dietary and various demographic instruments; physical assessments and collection and processing of laboratory specimens for analysis at both local and national medical laboratories. Quality assurance procedures, data entry and recruitment are important skills, which the field personnel are adept at doing and teaching. The staff sonographer who does Echo-cardiograms and Carotid Artery Ultrasounds is a Registered Radiographer as well as a Registered Mammography.

Protocol Development

Protocols are a critical tool in assuring uniform procedures in data collection, data entry and ultimately data use. MBIRI staff specializes in the review and implementation of protocols to assist coordinators, principal investigators and field personnel in standardized data collection. Performance is enhanced with protocols, which are designed for field use, helping to meet the goals of all personnel.

Develop Tracking and Interview Instruments

The instrument used for data collection and quality assurance should capture the needs of the program and be usable for community members and field technicians. MBIRI can assist with development or recommendation of instruments that can generate the reports needed for progress reports of both program goals and site or technician specific progress. This is an important and effective means of communicating with community and funding sources; and identifying personnel progress early in the project.

Training

Staff training and procedure reviews can help to set the pace for quality data collection in the field sites. MBIRI staff is experienced in assisting projects to develop goals, troubleshoot existing practices and procedures and work to develop solutions to data gathering problems. Training needs to include the promotion and education of community in rural and Reservation areas to encourage partnerships in project goals.

HIPAA Standards for Health Care

We will implement the security defined by the Department of Health and Human Services to meet the standards for privacy of individually identifiable health information as specified here.
