Podcast: Dr. Karen DeSalvo’s reflections on Public Health 3.0 and vision for the future of informatics

Dr. Karen DeSalvo

Public Health 3.0 describes an innovative model of public health that integrates social determinants of health with health IT and public health informatics. The architect of this plan, former Acting Assistant Secretary for Health and Human Services and the former director of the ONC, Dr. Karen DeSalvo, joined “Inform Me, Informatics” recently to reflect on the legacy of Public Health 3.0 and to share her vision for the future of public health informatics. During the course of our conversation, she also shared stories from her time as Health Commissioner in New Orleans and some great advice for the next generation of informaticians. Dr. DeSalvo recently left the public and academic sectors to become the first Chief Health Officer at Google.
