Contribute Public Health Use Cases by 6/25

Are you interested in how public health can utilize structured data capture? If you have specific use cases in mind, a newly formed Public Health Tiger Team wants to hear your suggestions by next Tuesday, June 25. 

To send your use case suggestions, or to ask any additional questions, you can contact: 
ONC, Jim (James) Daniel, james.daniel@hhs.gov or CDC, John Saindon, uzn0@cdc.gov

Detailed Information:
As noted in last week's blog post, a Public Health Tiger Team is now working to develop use cases and stories to support the Structured Data Capture Initiative. The Tiger Team kicked off with its first meeting on Tuesday, June 18, and discussed the goals and objectives of the group. Weekly meetings will be held on Tuesdays from 2:00 PM-3:00 pm EDT. 

Specifically, the Public Health Tiger Team aims to:

  • Develop use cases/stories that support a public health purpose for structured data capture
  • Develop priorities for public health, as it relates to structured data capture
  • Specify what information ought to be included in structured forms; this will help ensure that all data needed to fulfill the public health use case is available
Part of this process may also involve customizing common data elements (CDEs) to better fit the public health use case. 

Any and all interested participants are invited to join these Tiger Team meetings. The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, June 25, 2:00-3:00 pm EDT.
