National Association of Health Data Organizations

March 17, 2004


Nahdo s standards perspective

NAHDO’s Standards Perspective

  • Public health is broader than communicable disease reporting and epidemiology

  • The source of public health’s data is the private sector

  • Technological and political barriers require innovative solutions

  • The Public Health Data Standards Consortium is unique---composed of organizations representing diverse niches of expertise


Nahdo and standards

NAHDO and Standards

  • NAHDO is actively engaged in health care data standards activities

  • State health care data systems are based on UB-92 or the UHDDS plus local fields

  • State health care data needs are evolving:

    • e.g. nosocomial infections, race/ethnicity

    • Pharmacy, patient safety, and outpatient data initiatives

  • Balancing reporting burden with benefits:

    • Reasonable and appropriate reporting requirements

    • Industry gets something in return or buys into the “public good”
