Building a Customizable Knowledge Management Environment to Support Public Health Practice: Design Strategies

By Debra Revere and Sherrilynne Fuller


Public health practice is characterized by a lack of evidencebased decision support systems to help solve problems for the myriad of population health challenges today— from epidemics to chronic disease to bioterrorism and environmental disasters.
