The one-year countdown to the 2018 Public Health Informatics Conference has officially begun and we are very excited to bring you another memorable experience. Last year’s conference theme, "Access, Analysis, Action," explored how to procure technology and best obtain data for the end-user and connected attendees with available tools and support to understand the meaning of data. It also encouraged attendees to apply lessons learned about the application of data in their own profession and community to improve health outcomes.

Since 2003, the conference has provided a premier venue for groundbreaking discussions and opportunities to address the science of public health informatics, evolving public health systems, and public health’s role in our Nation’s expanding health information technology (IT) infrastructure.
Held biennally, the conference aims to provide a forum for new and seasoned public health, healthcare, and information technology professionals to exchange experiences, ideas, and strategies about public health informatics that are paramount to the advancement of public health practice and health equity. Attendees include beginning, intermediate, and advanced professionals working in public health (local, state, federal, and international), research, business, and healthcare organizations. The Public Health Informatics Conference delivers opportunities to connect with colleagues, share new research, and discover how to navigate the increasingly connected public health enterprise.
With the rapid implementation of global healthcare IT initiatives and accelerated developments, there is no better time than now to learn about and invest in public health informatics.
