THE 2010 FORUM
National Academy of Sciences Building
Washington, D.C.
June 2, 2010
In March 2010, the IOM and HHS hosted a small gathering of leaders from the White House, federal agencies, academia, social sectors, public health communities, information technology firms, major businesses, and health care delivery systems to catalyze the formation of a new Community Health Data Initiative. On June 2, 2010, the IOM and HHS held The Community Health Data Forum: Harnessing the Power of Information to Improve Health. The purpose of this public forum was to further ongoing efforts of innovators using community-level health data, which would allow individuals and communities to make informed choices about their health.

THE 2011 FORUM
National Institutes of Health
Bethesda, MD
June 9, 2011

As the types of available health data expanded beyond community data to include data on coverage, access, cost, quality, products and recalls, benefits, and more, the Community Health Data Initiative was rebranded as the Health Data Initiative (HDI).

On June 9, 2011, the Health Data Initiative Forum II expanded to include more than 50 applications that used data from HHS and other data suppliers. Community leaders, consumers, employers, providers, and others showcased ways that data could be used to spur health assessment, planning, and action.
