In collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), PHII hosted 239 attendees in a three-day virtual workshop focused on data modernization advocacy and planning.
Targeted towards recipients of the Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity for Prevention and Control of Emerging Infectious Diseases (ELC) cooperative agreement, the Data Modernization Workshop harnessed peer-to-peer learning to engage participants on key topics:
- sustainable information infrastructure
- improved workforce capacity and
- shared solutions to common data challenges.
Collaboration continued after the workshop as attendees shared job descriptions for informatics staff as well as recruitment and retention strategies implemented within their health departments.
