Corporate Authors:Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.). Office of the Chief Information Officer.
Description:Since it was founded in 1946, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has remained at the forefront of public health practice as its mission has expanded from the control of infectious diseases to include control and prevention of chronic diseases, injuries, workplace hazards, disabilities, and environmental health threats. CDC strives to improve the quality of people’s health in the U.S. and worldwide through an integrated health protection goal approach focused on:
• Healthy People in Every Stage of Life
• Healthy People in Healthy Places
• Healthy People in a Healthy World
• People Prepared for Emerging Health Threats
The purpose of the CDC Information Technology Strategic Plan (CITSP) is to guide the direction, focus, mission alignment, investments, initiatives, and accountability of CDC’s Information Technology (IT) program supporting CDC’s health protection goals and to maximize the IT value to CDC programs, partners, stakeholders, and customers.
For the purposes of this plan, information technology broadly means: (1) all information assets; (2) data and information collection, management, and sharing; (3) the information technology infrastructure including hardware, software, and communications; (4) information, computer, informatics sciences, and related disciplines; and (5) all associated IT management and planning activities such as information security, capital planning/investment control, and architecture. The plan
development was informed by an environmental analysis of key drivers, enablers, and trends that relate to CDC’s mission and by engaging a range of public, private, and academic sector participants. The organizing paradigm for the CITSP is the concept of an information supply chain to emphasize that the driving force behind technology investment is to promote improved health outcomes through the provisioning of high-quality, timely, relevant information to CDC, its partners, and customers.
The five broad goals contained in this plan cover:
• Core Mission: IT solutions supporting the CDC Health Protection Goals
• Business Services: Advanced business systems to support effective and efficient business service delivery and management practice
• Shared Enterprise Practices: Enterprise resources and processes that foster mission and operations success through information technology
• IT Foundation: Robust, reliable, and secure computing and communications products and services that enable CDC’s public health mission and business
• Collaborative Work and Innovation: Collaborative innovation throughout the public health domain to accelerate public health program implementation and improve program results.
