5124.0 Syndromic Surveillance Systems in HIT: A Collaborative Effort

Wednesday, November 2, 2011: 10:30 AM
Public-private partnerships are vital across all sectors. HIT is no exception. This is especially true if the work spans counties or states. This session will attempt to introduce a few examples of how well this can work in practice. As well, the session will examine the value of HIEs in each of these places.
Session Objectives: At the end of this session, participants should be able to: 1. describe the value of public-private partnerships in improving HIT systems; 2. evaluate how health information exchanges (HIEs) have made a difference in data collection in specific states.
