AbstractJoin us as we explore the impact of ONC's Standards & Interoperability Framework Public Health Reporting Initiative (PHRI). PHRI is working to simplify public health reporting and ensure that EHRs are interoperable with public health information systems. PHRI hopes to create a new public health Meaningful Use Stage 3 objective that is common across all program objectives - laying the ground work for public health reporting in the future. This panel will outline progress, challenges, and next steps of PHRI and describe how PHRI may affect the future of a standard language for biosurveillance.
