Great Lakes Health Connect
August 2, 2016, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Doug Dietzman, Executive Director, Great Lakes Health Connect. GLHC has been implementing a sustainable community-based health information exchange across the state of Michigan since 2010 and now is one of the most mature in the country. One of the communities GLHC serves is Flint Michigan where the lead-tainted water crisis has taken center stage nationally. Join us for a conversation of how community-based health information exchange is a key requirement for supporting these sorts of regional health crises and ensuring longitudinal medical data is available where and when it is needed. We also discuss important lessons for what a next generation public health community infrastructure might look like.
