    • Description:
      On the basis of this information, the Steering Committee developed a specific set of recommendations to guide the development, maintenance, and use of public health surveillance and health information systems at CDC/ATSDR. Three elements are essential to the evolution of integrated health information systems: data standards, a communications infrastructure, and policy-level agreements on data access, sharing, and burden reduction. Each element is necessary, but not sufficient, so steps must be taken to assure progress in all three areas. Although technical systems may be compatible, data will not be shared unless there are policylevel agreements to do so. Likewise, agreements on a policy level cannot be implemented unless adequate technical systems are in place." - p. 1

      A report and recommendations from the CDC/ATSDR Steering Committee on Public Health Information Surveillance System Development" chaired by Martha Katz.
