Joint Public Health Forum & CDC Nationwide Webinars

The purpose of these monthly webinars is to foster collaboration among public health jurisdictions and members of ONC’s Public Health CoP about the public health response to the widespread adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) for meaningful use.

Eligible healthcare providers and hospitals are purchasing and implementing the necessary certified EHR technology and are working with public health agencies and registries to report data in a standardized way in order to satisfy the meaningful use requirements and receive the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic EHR Incentive Program incentive payments.


  • Identify common questions and concerns around meaningful use
  • Provide updates on federal partner activities in preparing for meaningful use
  • Allow public health jurisdictions to share useful practices and current progress
  • Identify technical assistance needs and priorities

These monthly webinars are scheduled for the third Thursday of each month from 3-4 pm Eastern Time / 2-3 pm Central Time / 1-2 pm Mountain Time / 12-1 pm Pacific Time.
