Smart Use of State Public Health Data for Health Disparity Assessment

Ge Lin & Ming Qu

Smart Use of State Public Health Data for Health Disparity Assessment by Ge Lin & Ming Qu

Health services are often fragmented along organizational lines with limited communication among the public health-related programs or organizations, such as mental health, social services, and public health services. This can result in disjointed decision making without necessary data and knowledge, organizational fragmentation, and disparate knowledge development across the full array of public health needs. When new questions or challenges arise that require collaboration, individual public health practitioners (e.g., surveillance specialists and epidemiologists) often do not have the time...
