CDC’s New Public Health Data Strategy Report

Last week, CDC published its first Public Health Data Strategy (PHDS), an ambitious plan to improve the exchange of core data across healthcare and public health and support data-driven public health action and policy. The PHDS accelerates progress for CDC’s Data Modernization Initiative (DMI) over the next two years by focusing the scope, timing, and accountability measures underpinning DMI. CDC will create accountability for these Public Health Data Goals and 2-year milestones through the new Office of Public Health Data, Surveillance, and Technology (OPHDST), which will lead and strengthen engagement and collaboration with jurisdictions, CDC programs, and private partners, and focus the execution of data modernization activities.
