Population Health Information Exchange Over a Digital Bridge

3:00pm - 4:00pm Thursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Delfino 4002

Description

Digital Bridge is a collaboration between healthcare, public health, and health information technology organizations to ensure our nation’s health through improved information sharing across sectors. As its first project, the collaborative has designed a nationally scalable, multi-jurisdictional approach to electronic case reporting (eCR) that is being implemented across different states and cities. Objectives for eCR include improved public health surveillance of infectious diseases and decreased burden on providers for meeting public health reporting requirements. The approach for this project promotes public-private partnerships motivated by mutually beneficial outcomes. These outcomes include improved data for public health and clinical practice and lower costs for information sharing. Digital Bridge governance principles and partners' technical infrastructure will be extensible to chronic conditions and other population health issues.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe a collaborative between healthcare providers, public health, and information technology developers to improve information exchange and health outcomes
  • Appraise progress toward automating public health case reporting of infectious disease cases
  • Outline future work to improve chronic disease management and deliver social and environmental risk data to clinical settings
