Public Health Informatics Applications in Ontario
Public Health Informatics is a new field that is concerned with the systematic application of information and computer sciences to public health practice, research and learning. Modern public health practice requires the increased development and use of sophisticated electronic systems to facilitate disease surveillance, event management, communication, and data exchange among public health personnel at the local, provincial/territorial, and federal levels.
