Rendezvous: Public Health Informatics
Edit: A recording is now available at https://webmeeting.nih.gov/p94361960/
Local public health departments are participating in national health information exchange (HIE) initiatives, and librarians can have a role in facilitating community access to local health data. The Community Health Informatics Project, a partnership between University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana (UIUC) and the Champaign-Urbana Public Health District (CUPHD), is step toward community access to data. The project transformed a collection of data and statistics into an easily-accessible web portal and an informal service became a sustainable partnership among the UIUC Illinois Informatics Initiative, faculty in two schools, and a health department.
