Guam NPHII HIT Training
In September of 2012, NACCHO and ASTHO teamed up to provide informatics training for the Pacific Island Health Officers Association under the NPHII cooperative agreement for technical assistance. The workshop was held in Guam over three days and was designed to include a broad list of informatics topics, tools, and many hands on exercises (available for review HERE). The target group of participants included health information officers, public health program officers implementing new software applications, and Health agency IT officers for hospitals, community health centers and public health departments across the Pacific Islands.
