Public Health Informatics Conference - ePublic Health
Event Date: 
Thursday, April 24, 2014 to Thursday, May 1, 2014
Description: 

Since 2003, the Public Health Informatics Conference (formerly known as the PHIN Conference) has been an important venue to convene all levels of governmental public health providers (local, state, and federal), researchers, vendors, and national public health and healthcare organizations to address public health informatics and information technology infrastructure and workforce capacity needs.

The conference provides leadership and guidance for public health organizations navigating through an era of interoperable and integrated health information exchange. With the rapid implementation of national healthcare IT initiatives and accelerated developments, there is no better time than now to invest in public health informatics. The conference provides a venue for groundbreaking discussions and opportunities to provide input to CDC and other key stakeholders to accomplish the goal of cross-industry collaborations in healthcare IT.

As co-sponsors of the conference, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will host events, develop partnerships, build relationships and initiate programs and policies that distinguish the Public Health Informatics Conference as the premier vehicle for which positive opportunities for change are possible through thought-provoking and well-informed presentations and dialogue sessions.
