E-Health Interventions in Public Health
We all use information to make decisions. In our daily life, we have seen remarkable gains in the ease with which we can access information. Unfortunately, similar advances in information access have not occurred in public health practice, where it is often difficult to access necessary information. There is a huge potential benefit to society if we can develop and evaluate software to help people make better decisions about preventing chronic diseases, detecting infectious disease outbreaks, and planning the delivery of public health services. This research program will develop and evaluate innovative strategies that use modern computing to improve decisions about important public health problems.
