Initiative Aims To Standardize Public Health Data Reporting
IBM is collaborating with CDC and the Public Health Data Standards Consortium to develop standards for exchanging and reporting public health data. As part of the project, the organizations will develop templates for public health case reports that would be compatible with electronic health record systems and align with the meaningful use program's requirements.
