This All In webinar featured presentations from leadership at Johns Hopkins University and the Network for Public Health Law. As authors of a recent deBeaumont Foundation report, Using Electronic Health Data for Community Health, they discussed the legal underpinnings of data sharing between health systems and public health departments.
HIPAA is often considered an impediment to sharing health data between health systems and public health departments. A new report funded by the de Beaumont Foundation and produced by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in partnership with the Network of Public Health Law, Using Electronic Health Data for Community Health, provides a roadmap for how to overcome perceived barriers to using electronic health data for public health activities.
- Joshua M. Sharfstein, MD, Associate Dean for Public Health Practice and Training, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
- Denise Chrysler, JD, Director, Mid-States Region of the Network for Public Health Law at the University of Michigan School of Public Health
The second webinar in a two-part series on using electronic health data for community health improvement features presentations from two authors of the report. Participants submitted real-life examples of challenges they have faced when sharing data between health systems and public health agencies and experts will provide hands-on support.
