Public Health Informatics Profile Toolkit

A Toolkit for State and Local Health Departments to Assess their Informatics Capacity

Public health plays a critical role in the collection and dissemination of health information. However, the systems that support this information are often fragmented, particularly at the state and local level, and afford little opportunity for inter-program communication. The Public Health Informatics Profile Toolkit was designed as a resource for state and local health departments to assess needs and readiness for health information exchange in today's rapidly changing health information environment.

This section describes how to develop a broad conceptual overview of the project, and how to define the project scope and goals.
