5051.0 Grid-enabled Computing: Data Sharing Between Public Health and Clinical Care

Wednesday, November 11, 2009: 8:30 AM
Data sharing between clinical practice and public health will result in the identification of patterns that inform prevention and ultimately mitigate the impact of outbreaks. Public health departments can play a key role in helping clinicians make these connections as HIEs are developed. This session will provide a status update.
Session Objectives: *Discuss the potential roles of local health departments in developing health information exchange systems. *Describe how online, web-based surveys are applied and implemented in the public health research.
