Washington State Department of Health
Public Health Improvement Partnership Public Health Information Technology Committee Feasibility Study
In response to a call for greater efficiency and improved data systems across the State’s local health jurisdictions (LHJs) and DOH, BERK identified a range of options for a coordinated, statewide approach to information technology systems.
We conducted stakeholder interviews and best practices research to identify national models practice, such as coordinating boards, clearinghouses, alliances, and other organizational structures that can help integrate technology investments and systems across jurisdictions. We also researched organizational structures in health care, public health, and other disciplines where information flow is critical.
