Closing the public health modernization gap with technology and agility

How to take an empathy-first, resident-centric approach to designing processes

As the frequency and magnitude of current events impacting public health increase, public health agencies must re-evaluate and redefine what readiness looks like. It’s no longer sufficient to design public health infrastructure based on what we anticipate the future to look like, rather design for a future where agility, accessibility, and security trump everything.

In this panel discussion, you’ll hear from government leaders in data modernization on how to take an empathy-first, resident-centric approach to designing processes by:

  • Breaking down data silos
  • Remaining data driven even in times of crisis
  • Upholding security standards while migrating to the cloud
