Public Health Informatics, Information Technology, Surveillance

As the only conference that focuses on the challenges and opportunities for local health, NACCHO 360 offers a unique chance to connect with public health professionals who are working at the community level to improve the health of our nation. In an effort to break down silos, and to bridge data, theory, and practice, NACCHO 360 now includes a focus component on health information and technology: Public Health Informatics, Information Technology, and Surveillance (PHIITS).

PHIITS goes beyond informatics and explores local health department information technology infrastructure and public health surveillance.  PHITTS provides a premier opportunity for groundbreaking discussions and collaboration to address the science of public health informatics, evolving public health systems, and public health’s role in our nation’s expanding health IT infrastructure.  

In addition, a dynamic HIMMS Interoperability Showcase will feature how health information technology systems utilize standards to support interoperability that enables healthcare providers and public health departments to send, receive, exchange, and use secure data. Featured demonstrations will showcase collaborative projects between organizations using interoperability standards to exchange information and improve the quality and value of care.
