  • Description:
    "This volume marks a significant moment in the history of the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics. The Committee, which advises the Department of Health and Human Services, has helped shape the Nation's health statistics and information policy for more than 50 years. In June 2000, it celebrated its 50th anniversary by commissioning a history of its first 50 years and hosting a symposium that focused not on its distinguished past, but on its vision for the future. Two reports--on the National Health Information Infrastructure (NHII) and 21st century health statistics-- were presented and discussed at that meeting. Those two reports, the 50-year History, and a summary of the 50th Anniversary Symposium are all contained in this book. Final reports on the NHII and 21st century health statistics are planned for 2002. The Committee's sixth decade coincides with the beginning of a new century in which emerging technologies and means of communication are greatly enhancing the uses of information and knowledge to advance the Nation's health. While looking back at past accomplishments, we can all look forward to the Committee's continuing contributions to health information policy as NCVHS helps government, private organizations, and the public make informed health decisions." - p. iii
