Data modernization is the implementation of systems and processes that enhance our ability to share and integrate data across systems, often using interoperability standards. A more modern data system across public health and health care would support the ability to act on accurate data and promote more timely and evidence-based decision making. Implementation science examines the process and outcomes associated with implementing evidence-based interventions into practice, including in both clinical and community settings. It is critical to ensuring the success of data modernization initiatives, by generating evidence about the facilitators and barriers associated with implementation and measurement of standardized clinical and public health data systems.
Join RTI virtually from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm Eastern on November 29th for a discussion with Dr. Melissa McPheeters (RTI International), Dr. Jessie Tenenbaum (North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services), Dr. Anne Sales (University of Missouri), and Dr. David Clark (National Institutes of Health, National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health) to discuss connections between data modernization and implementation science. This event is sponsored by the Consortium for Implementation Science, a joint endeavor of RTI International, UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, and Duke University.
