“From Jaime Bland’s session on Health Data Utilities and Public Health Partnerships to John Kansky’s session on Harnessing Health Data Utilities for Public Health, conference attendees will gain fundamental knowledge and insight into the health data utility model. Participants will benefit from the use of state policy instruments, the involvement of broad stakeholder groups in participation and community engagement, and the benefits of Medicaid and public health, all while maintaining high standards of data privacy and security. You can take lessons at home on mature use cases.”
