Implementing The National Health Security Strategy: The Role of Patient Tracking in Public Health Practice
This white paper, presented by UPP Technology, is part two in a five part series of reports focusing on the challenges of tracking patients before, during and after events.
It details the steps to be taken to further improve patient tracking, including development of a national uniform registration system, development of a patient information exchange, linkage of the registration system to the patient information exchange, clear partnership between medical leadership and public health leadership and development of a national funding strategy for these system improvements.
The white paper concludes by saying the merger of medical and public health needs will drive these local initiatives, whose goal is to improve the health of the public they serve, especially in disaster events.
