On August 30, 2021, PHII’s Danielle Sill joined CDC’s Laura Pabst to present a webinar on how to conduct a readiness assessment. This guidance was targeted toward recipients of the CDC’s birth surveillance cooperative agreement, but may provide helpful background on building interoperability capability for any birth defects surveillance program. The webinar focuses chiefly on the use of a new readiness assessment tool developed by PHII with funding from the CDC.
The webinar’s accompanying slides are available for download. PHII’s Birth Defects Surveillance Readiness Assessment is also available as a downloadable tool.
