Dr. Joseph Gibson on the Importance of Informatics

I encourage you to check out a recent post on NACCHO's ePublic Health blog, “What is informatics, and why should I care?” In his post, Dr. Joseph Gibson describes the importance of informatics to the public health community as a tool to effectively manage information, emphasizing the need for thorough informatics planning.

He makes clear that understanding the importance of informatics can help public health departments implement strong information systems that meet their needs and the needs of the communities they serve.
