Some state and local jurisdictions are further along than others in effectively using health data – both in providing public access to data and in ensuring use of these data by policymakers, health care consumers, advocacy organizations, start-ups, and others. This session will feature local and state leaders in open data for a candid discussion of successes and lessons learned with open data. Panelists will share ideas for how other local communities can free their public domain health data and supply recommendations for what’s needed to help ensure that government entities across America can publish, promulgate, and encourage broad use of local health data.
