The COVID-19 pandemic has placed a renewed focus on the role of Information Technology (IT) within the U.S. public health ecosystem. There is much to learn about what is possible – or what ought to be possible – when it comes to addressing the system’s wide range of needs. This panel of government health IT leaders from various public health agencies will give insight into how IT is helping to meet today’s demands and identify opportunities where IT can improve future outcomes in an ever-evolving public health landscape.

Potential topics include:

  • Data, systems, and processes needed to meet the scale, agility, and complexity modern public health requires
  • Instances where agency coordination involving data management and interoperability enable IT to support public health and COVID-19 response
  • Use cases and potential solutions where IT can increase patient access, reduce costs, and improve population outcomes such as digital front door, telehealth, and research
