PH/HA believes that public health and health administration are increasingly important areas in the current environment. Information, resources, technology, research and new challenges are expanding tremendously in health care and medicine.
The fields of public health and health administration are there to communicate relevant health information; account for health care priorities, policy and delivery; manage crises; and address major health concerns. All these activities are information intensive–that is, they rely heavily on systems of information access to support professional decision-making, practice and action.
PH/HA programs not only demonstrate the importance of public health informatics, but also point to its growing significance on an international and global scale.
The Public Health and Health Administration section of the Medical Library Association currently has over 150 members. If you would like to meet with colleagues interested in the field of public health information, then now is a good time to become involved with PH/HA.
