Population Health Informatics and Epidemiologist Support
Our staff provides a broad range of technical healthcare informatics support to the Military Health System (MHS), Air Force Surgeon General (AF/SG), Major Commands (MAJCOMs), and Medical Treatment facilities (MTFs), as these organizations shift their focus from intervention services to improving the health of the entire population through population health initiatives. We develop clinical process improvement measures and outcome metrics for the MTFs as they implement population-based healthcare and perform program data queries and analyses integration of medical knowledge and analytical software applications. For the MHS Population Health Portal (MHSPHP), our staff advises MAJCOMs and MTFs on the use of developed clinical metrics system measures to improve the health of their enrolled population.
Our Epidemiologists assists in accessing, analyzing, and disseminating information about specific populations, by developing, validating and linking various medical, safety, environmental, occupational, and personnel databases. They provide the investigative and research expertise to develop prototypes of tools, programs, procedures, services and databases.
