Environmental public health tracking is the ongoing assortment, integration, analysis, interpretation, and dissemination of knowledge from environmental hazard monitoring, and from human exposure and health effects surveillance. CDC is currently leading the initiative to create a National Environmental Public Health Tracking Network.
The Tracking Network integrates knowledge from these three components into a network of standardized electronic knowledge that will provide valid scientific information on environmental exposures and adverse health conditions still because the potential spatial and temporal relations between them.
Developing a sustainable standards-based mostly national network is an iterative method that will enable direct electronic data reporting and linkage at intervals and across health effects, exposure, and hazard data and will interoperate with alternative environmental public health systems.
Technical Network Implementation Plan
The Technical Network Implementation Plan (TNIP) is that the road map employed by technical and scientific workers within the Tracking Program to guide the event of the Tracking Network. The TNIP may be a living document and can be updated periodically as experience is gained and as the components of the Network are refined and implemented.
