Linking Informatics and Cross-Programmatic Public Health Strategic Objectives


There is national recognition of the need for cross-programmatic data and system coordination and integration for surveillance, prevention, response, and control implementation. To accomplish this public health must develop an informatics competency and create an achievable roadmap, supported by performance measures, for the future. Within the New York State Department of Health, Office of Public Health (OPH), a cross-organizational and cross-functional Public Health Information Management Workgroup (PHIM-WG) was formed to align public health information and technology goals, objectives, strategies, and resources across OPH. In June 2011, the OPH Performance Management Initiative, funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, offered strategic planning workshops to PHIM-WG.



To develop strategic objectives necessary to optimize the collection, integration, and use of information across public health programs and internal and external partners for improving the overall health and safety of people and their communities.
