NJ Health Data Project Approves Research Addressing Population Health

February 14, 2024

The governing board of the New Jersey Integrated Population Health Data (iPHD) Project in December approved the release of data – along with pilot funding and data access fee waivers – for six research proposals to study the top challenges of the state’s population health.

These projects, submitted in the 2023 application cycle, will be led by investigators at institutions in both academia and state government.

The iPHD informs policymaking and strengthens population health research by integrating New Jersey health and other administrative data, allowing researchers to study priority issues for the state. Each project will address one or more of the iPHD’s four research priorities

“Since we launched the iPHD in June 2022, awareness and enthusiasm for the potential of the iPHD has grown,” said Joel Cantor, Distinguished Professor, director of the CSHP and ex-officio member of the iPHD governing board. “In the last year, we doubled the roster of experts on the project’s Research Advisory Committee and increased the number of applications for data access by half. With each application cycle, the iPHD is continuing to build an active, engaged community of researchers and health policy makers.”

The project builds on the long-standing relationship between Rutgers University and New Jersey state agencies, including the Department of Health.
