This is a 90-minute recording of a webinar.
This webinar will introduce the audience to the national dialogue about public health and healthcare system integration. For the last several years, there has been an ongoing national dialogue about the need for improved coordination and integration between public health and the healthcare delivery system. With improved collaboration between these two entities, expectations are that population health objectives can be more effectively met, quality of care and services can be refined, and costs could decrease. In recent years, infectious diseases have been at the forefront of the public health portfolio and have helped demonstrate the significant need to strengthen the collaboration between public health and healthcare.
