This group meets to share individual perspectives and experiences, not to attain group consensus or advice.

CDC values the unique strengths private-sector partners can bring to our work. Please contact us at if you are interested in participating in the Consortium for Data Modernization.

The Consortium for Data Modernization is a group of public health partners that includes:

  • Public health associations
  • State, tribal, local, and territorial (STLT) representatives
  • Industry
  • Academia
  • Community-based organizations

The Consortium for Data Modernization exists to:

  • Share individual and organization perspectives on priorities and strategies for modernizing public health data and surveillance in the United States.
  • Identify challenges that delay data modernization efforts and discuss possible solutions.
  • Gather with subject matter experts from a variety of backgrounds to strategize and suggest new approaches to public health data surveillance and based on their real-world experiences.
  • Stay updated about ongoing and future data modernization priorities.
How Does the Consortium Work?

The Consortium is facilitated by CDC and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC).

Meetings are scheduled as needed and participants are invited based on discussion topics. Executive summaries of participants’ individual perspectives will be posted on this webpage following the meetings.
