Environmental Health Data Modernization

Abstract colored bands of light

CDC’s Data Modernization Initiative (DMI) is at the heart of a national effort to create modern, integrated, and real-time public health data and surveillance that can protect us from any health threat.

Data Modernization Efforts

CDC’s Environmental Public Health Tracking Program and the Water, Food, and Environmental Health Services Branch (WFEHSB) are working together to enhance and expand environmental health data modernization efforts across the country.

Special Projects

In fiscal year 2021, these programs provided $2.25 million in funding for projects from 11 Tracking Program jurisdictions to modernize the collection, integration, dissemination, and application of timely, local environmental health data. The goals of these projects are to

  • develop and maintain effective partnerships,
  • make data sharing easier, and
  • develop sustainable and modernized IT infrastructure and processes related to Environmental Health Services (EHS) data.
