This section of the toolkit provides examples of states that have integrated or are effectively sharing public health data leading to valuable insight into the experiences of children and their families. While many states wish to integrate public health data into ECIDS, the lack of federal funding, tools, and resources has inhibited the inclusion of these valuable data. As states work towards overcoming these barriers to full integration of public health data, many have created opportunities and innovative solutions to sharing and using public health data alongside data from other sectors.
These states, through their respective reporting features, are informing policymakers and programs and improving outcomes for children and families while demonstrating the value of coordination and sharing of public health data. Work from the following states are highlighted based on interviews and a review of documentation.
