Public Health Information Network
The Public Health Information Network (PHIN) is a live, secure Internet-based network for the secure exchange of public health information. PHIN supports key public health functions such as detecting health problems, analyzing data, communicating alerts, linking people with useful information, and managing public health response. PHIN is a multiorganizational business and technical architecture, and includes technical standards, data standards, and specifications for doing work. PHIN is also a process for integrating public health partners across the nation. To realize the promise of PHIN, health departments at the local, state, and federal levels must commit to using the PHIN standards, participate in developing and implementing specifications, and consider the data needs of partners.
