Joint Public Health Informatics Task Force (JPHIT)

Joint Public Health Informatics Task Force (JPHIT) is a collaboration of public health associations committed to improving population health through informatics, health IT and information exchange. As a consortium of membership associations, JPHIT is unique within the field of public health. Created in 2008, JPHIT provides a forum that enables coordinated and collaborative development and implementation of public health informatics priorities, a unified voice on national informatics policy issues, and a focus on improving performance of the public health system through informatics. Since its creation, JPHIT has created and communicated unified positions on issues such as proposed Meaningful Use requirements, public health representatives on national health IT advisory committees, the organization of informatics within CDC, and other issues.
