Get ready! April 4-10 Is National Public Health Week #NPHW #NPHWForum

These days, one of the big buzzwords in the health IT community is "pop health" (short for population health). Well, public health and pop health are practically sisters! This week is National Public Health Week.

Follow @PublicHealth for the latest updates this week on some exciting public health initiatives and join the conversation. Do you live in a city that's going to participate in the #HealthiestCitiesChallenge?

Advances in technology, big data analytics, and team-based care will lead to improvements in public health. Also, don't forget that public health professionals are also actively involved in quality improvement (QI) projects. The PHQIX (Public Health Quality Improvement Exchange) is a great place to read about some of those projects.
