2018 PHI Conference: Sneak Peek at Plenary Sessions

Jul 31, 2018 | Kim Rodgers

The 2018 PHI Conference will feature three exciting plenary sessions that provide a big-picture overview of how public health and its cross-sector partners are engaging in efforts to connect systems and people to improve population health. Check out the below descriptions for a sneak-peek into what you can expect to hear about during each plenary:

Connecting People: Building and Strengthening Partnerships across Sectors
Leveraging electronic data for population health improvement requires the engagement of public health practitioners and representatives from other critical sectors such as information technology, education, healthcare, law, law enforcement, business, academia, housing, social services, and transportation. Cultivating skills and partnerships among the workforce is essential for bridging distinct disciplines and catalyzing collaboration to respond to today’s challenges and opportunities, and prepare for those of tomorrow. This opening plenary session will highlight how individuals from different agencies and companies have moved beyond the boundaries of their professions to harness electronic data from traditional and non-traditional sources in an effort to foster a healthier, more equitable society.

Connecting Systems: Facilitating Electronic Information Exchange
Technology has continued to drive innovation and the development of products that acquire, store, compute, and exchange vast amounts of electronic data with the potential to inform population health improvement efforts. Sharing and coalescing these data – particularly in an automated, interoperable, and secure manner – remains a work in progress, but novel approaches can offer insights on how separate data sources can join to facilitate electronic information exchange. This plenary will highlight existing and potential efforts to integrate technology and information systems with the ultimate intent of enhancing the delivery of public health programs and services.

Connecting Systems and People: The Future of Population Health: Where Do We Go From Here?
To advance population health, public health and its cross-sector partners must strengthen their ability to quickly and effectively gather and apply data to improve health outcomes. The closing plenary will highlight the critical role of public health in supporting population health and present a call to action for the field to strengthen the informatics capabilities of the public health workforce; leverage data and build synergy with healthcare; and explore how public health informatics can become the enabler of health across the spectrum of care.

There’s something for everyone at the 2018 PHI Conference. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn from your peers, hear from thought leaders, discover new solutions, and get inspired about how to “Connect Systems and People to Improve Population Health.” REGISTER today!
