Did you miss NACCHO’s Webinar on Public Health IT Preparedness: What LHDs Need to Do Now and Plan for the Future?

The webinar explored opportunities where local health departments can work with their state health departments, clinical partners and federal agencies to increase health IT workforce and technical capacity to achieve public health goals.

The speakers addressed the following questions:

  • What exactly should LHDs be doing to advance ePublic Health & Informatics within their departments and in coordination with health care partners?
  • Where and how can LHDs become more involved and demonstrate leadership?
  • Once an LHD is at the table, what should they articulate?
  • What should LHDs be doing now and planning for later?
  • How can LHDs measure their progress?
