Data Modernization Learning Community
The Data Modernization learning community calls consist of peer-to-peer presentations on data modernization successes and challenges with the chance to collaborate with peers from other jurisdictions. Data modernization resources and planning materials are available for DMI leads through the project collaboration workspace, Circle. The workspace houses meeting materials and recordings, documents and files, and facilitates interactive conversations through the use of message boards and forums.
Data Modernization Workshop
For our third year, PHII, in coordination with CDC, will host a virtual workshop for DMI Directors, their teams and designated public health partners on September 12-14. This three-day virtual event will build upon the workshops held in 2021 and 2022, and strives to enhance jurisdictions’ technical skills and ability to form equity-centered connections that progress modernization ideas and aspirations among people and across systems. We plan to create a highly interactive experience focused on amplifying connections and content-sharing capacities.
Data Modernization Planning Toolkit
The toolkit supports Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity for Prevention and Control of Emerging Infectious Diseases (ELC) in planning data modernization ventures at health departments. It is not an implementation plan, as each jurisdiction’s data modernization projects will differ. Instead, it is a guide to build leadership and partner buy-in for data modernization work and to assist health departments in developing plans that prioritize data modernization activities.
DMI Stories from the Field
Data for Action Initiative
As an extension of their Data Modernization Initiative, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has partnered with the Public Health Informatics Institute (PHII) to convene a group of public health partners across the public health landscape to start a discussion surrounding “Data for Action” and what it might entail.
