The Division of Health Informatics and Surveillance (DHIS), formerly the Public Health Surveillance and Informatics Program Office, completed its Fiscal Years 2013–2016 Strategic Plan. This plan is the roadmap we will use to carry out our mission. It explains our strategic goals and objectives for the next 4 years and describes how we will measure progress as we work to achieve them. The plan also highlights our emphasis on strengthening our working relationships with state and local public health departments, other federal agencies and key partners, and programs at CDC.
This strategic plan is a living document. It reflects the collaborative engagement of our leadership and staff. We also engaged our stakeholders and partners and received valued feedback, which is reflected in this refined version of our plan. We thank everyone who provided such valuable feedback during this process because it sharpened our focus and strengthened our plan.
As we work toward achieving our goals and objectives, together with our partners and stakeholders, we will improve our operations, strengthen our services, and enhance our ongoing two-way communication. Ultimately, this ongoing collaboration will improve our collective ability to help guide public health decisions through advances in the practice of surveillance and informatics.
