Informatics is the application of knowledge and skills in information systems and data exchange to help move the right information to the right person at the right time. Using innovative problem solving approaches, informatics involves capturing, managing, analyzing and using information to improve population health. It helps health practitioners understand the population’s health status and needs and identify and implement appropriate and effective interventions to meet those needs. In this presentation, Dr. Jina Joan Dcruz will discuss the concept of prevention informatics, how it uses data to address upstream and downstream factors that influence population health, and the need for collaboration among various sectors for this approach to work. She will also share some promising prevention informatics initiatives and projects that are currently taking place.

Jina Joan Dcruz, PhD, MA Health Scientist, Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology, and Laboratory Services, CDC
