Public Health Data Reimagined

Recorded on November 18, 2020

Our nation’s public health ecosystem is currently overwhelmed, and with COVID-19 we must strengthen our national public health system for the benefit of all Americans. It’s critical that federal government authorities, state public health experts, and policy development officials find the most effective approach to data collection, sharing, and reporting for now and in the future.

During this one-hour FREE webinar, we’ll investigate how to make data sharing faster and more efficient to relieve the burden faced by health care providers.

  • Learn about the federal and state authorities’ role in data collection, the 50+ independent data systems involved with public health data reporting, and the different mechanisms for sharing that data from the health care provider
  • Examine the critical gaps caused by the existing data reporting structure and mandates that could aid stronger reporting consistency
  • Understand the barriers that need to be overcome to make infrastructure more accessible for all levels of government and capable of handling the scale required in a national emergency response
  • Identify potential infrastructure improvements that could facilitate proactive, bidirectional care intervention
