Course Director: Catherine Staes, BSN, MPH, PhD Public Health Informatics 10x10 AMIA-Utah Course overview and logistics
‹#› Welcome to PH Informatics! From all the faculty involved… Catherine Staes -Biomedical Informatics Scott Narus -Biomedical Informatics Wu Xu -Utah Department of Health Barry Nangle -Utah Department of Health Susan Matney -Nursing Informatics Kathy Sward -Nursing Informatics Per Gesteland -Pediatrics/Biomedical Informatics Kathi Marti-Utah Department of Health Jen Wrathall-Utah Department of Health Nancy McConnell-Utah Department of Health
‹#› Goal: To introduce informatics and public health students/practitioners to informatics principles and their application to public health problems. Students will develop basic analysis and lifelong learning skills to engage in the evolving field of public health informatics.
‹#› What is Public Health? What is informatics? Syllabus review Introduction to the class project Face-to-face meeting at AMIA NOW! 5/24
‹#› Most people only consider the tip of the iceberg Vaccination of childrenrestaurant inspections outbreak investigation birth/death certificates care for indigentsnotifiable disease reporting Clean water/air & environmental monitoring Injury control and prevention / safe roads protected food supply proper disposal of solid and liquid waste rat control and mosquito abatement Disease surveillance prevention and prepareness research. Broad invisible aspects of public health
‹#› Why is “public health” hard to grasp? Clinicians and others often have a preconceived idea about public health often limited or even incorrect. Public health has a broad scope hard to fathom. Focus of public health has evolved in past 200 years – activities are driven by goals. Involves varying interventions Involves diverse professional disciplines and role of epidemiologist is not well understood. Amalgam of science, action, policy, advocacy, & govt.
‹#› Causal pathway of disease
‹#› What is Public Health Informatics? Catherine Staes, BSN, MPH, PHD My definition: Public health informatics is the application of informatics methods and tools to support public health goals. Others: Public health informatics is the systematic application of information and computer science and technology to public health practice, research, and learning.
‹#› Data ---> Information ---> knowledge Automated surveillance Knowledge-base development and management Integrated systems Electronic health records Health risk communication Model development (ED crowding, disease in population) Standardized vocabulary and data models Natural language processing Decision-support systems Usability / Human-computer interaction Informatics methods and tools
‹#› Public health practice is: data-intensive dependent on information: Acquisition management and analysis exchange Communication Opportunities for process improvement
‹#› 1)Prevent and Control Infectious Diseases 2)Promote Preparedness to Protect Health 3)Promote Health to Reduce Chronic Diseases and Disability 4)Create Safer and Healthier Places 5)Work Together to Build a Healthy World 6)Manage and Market Health Information 7)Promote Cross-Cutting Public Health Research Pg 87….”The need for informatics development has been recognized within all public health disciplines” Public health research agenda Analytical methods Information and visualization Communications and alerting technologies Decision support Electronic health records Knowledge management
‹#› Modules for the course 1.Introduction to public health informatics and the mission and practice of public health 2. Fundamentals informatics principles and application to public health (part 1) Introduction to database design System development 101 Business process analysis 3.
