In 2022, the Washington State Department of Health, the University of Washington Department of Epidemiology, and the Northwest Center for Public Health Practice began working together to advance data modernization efforts in Washington state. Specific attention was given to a gap analysis of public health infrastructure and workforce performance. The partnership aims to utilize these findings to support future data systems improvements.
During this hour-long webinar, Michelle Campbell, the Director of the Center for Data Modernization and Informatics at the Washington State Department of Health, and Janet Baseman, the Interim Chair of the University of Washington’s Department of Epidemiology and a member of the NWCPHP’s Research Team, will summarize findings from a joint effort to advance data modernization for public health in Washington. Their discussion will focus on the accomplishments and goals that have emerged from their partnership, with an eye toward improving partner involvement and driving ongoing initiatives.
