Data Collection and Reporting

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation established a National Commission to Transform Public Health Data Systems to reimagine how data are collected, shared, and used, and to identify the investments needed to improve health equity. Commissioners examined both the systems and the data needed to ensure public health information works for all. The commission offers recommendations for government at all levels — business, community-based organizations, philanthropy, and others — to take specific action to reimagine and modernize the public health data system. A series of white papers describe the current landscape, emerging innovations, and the opportunities for transforming and transitioning to a new public health data system.
