New Jersey Health Data Project Tackles State’s Pressing Health Needs

June 13, 2022

Rutgers Center for State Health Policy launched the New Jersey Integrated Population Health Data (iPHD) Project this week to address some of the state’s most pressing health care issues including the opioid epidemic, maternal and infant health and New Jersey’s response to COVID-19 and other public health emergencies.

Research scholars and policy experts from throughout the state came together Wednesday for a virtual Research Consortium that marked the project launch. The event showcased how the iPHD aims to inform public health policymaking in New Jersey by using administrative data in research to promote a more complete understanding of the factors that impact population health and efficiency of government programs.

“One of the chief goals of the iPHD is to create a community of researchers in New Jersey dedicated to addressing questions about the most pressing health needs of New Jersey residents,” said Joel Cantor, Distinguished Professor, Director of the Center for State Health Policy and ex-officio member of the iPHD Governing Board. “And the consortium is an important first step toward engaging this community and helping it grow.”
