Purpose: The purpose of this meeting is to provide an opportunity for the Population Health and Privacy, Confidentiality and Security Subcommittees to hear from data providers, users, and experts in health data on community uses of data to improve health. NCVHS seeks to: (1) Advance its understanding of access to and use of data by communities to improve population health; (2) refine its Stewardship Framework for the Use of Community Health to support the needs of various types of community initiatives; and (3) better understand the role of government in providing data, tools, and resources to promote community driven change.
The agenda is organized for attendees to participate in breakout groups throughout the day exploring such topics and themes as “How best to promote community engagement and participation,” “How to promote secure practices,” “How to achieve information-enabled community-driven change,” “What is the need for standardized approaches for generating qualitative information,” and ending with “What analytic support can state and the Federal government provide.” Participants will be briefed on the results of a preliminary environmental scan of programs supporting local community data use as well as key messages from the Committee's report: the Community as a Learning System: Using Local Data to Improve Local Health. http://www.ncvhs.hhs.gov/111213chip.pdf.
