Centers for Disease Control and Prevention information technology strategic plan FY 2012-2016 : strengthening the public health information supply chain to better protect the health of people everywhere
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 approach with a focus on public health priorities.
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 public health priorities 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; (5) all associated IT management and planning activities such as information security, capital planning/investment control, and architecture; and (6) applicable human resources. 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 driving force for the CITSP is to promote improved health outcomes through the provisioning of high-quality, timely, relevant information to CDC, its partners, and customers.
The five broad goal areas contained in this plan cover:
• CDC Public Health Mission CDC’s core mission is expressed through the public health priorities. This is the critical domain for IT because it provides strategic value to the agency in achievement of health impact and quality of health.
• Business services Achievement of CDC’s mission requires predictable, effective, timely, high quality, and agile business services delivering a broad range of functions and services. These business services provide both direct and indirect service and support to the mission.
• IT operations and infrastructure Computing and communication assets and services form the foundation of CDC’s information and informatics programs. These services enable CDC’s public health mission and vision of promoting health and the quality of life by bringing the power and advantage of IT infrastructure to the challenges faced by CDC and its public health partners. This goal area addresses robust, reliable, and secure computing and communications.
• Enterprise processes and shared resources Common resources and processes required to effectively govern, manage and execute IT practice at the CDC and keep it aligned with the agency’s strategic intent.
• Collaboration and innovation The complexity of CDC’s mission compounded by increasing demands for better performance at lower cost and reduced risk provide strong impetus for ggressive collaboration and innovation.
The plan includes twenty-two objectives and forty-two performance measures. Primary and contributing organizations with responsibility for achieving the objectives have been identified in this plan. The Tactical (Operations) Phase described in the Strategic Planning Process is recognized as important for the Agency to operationalize this plan to achieve the Agency and IT strategic goals.
