Population health is more than the health of a population—it is a systems framework for studying and improving the distribution and determinants of health and quality of life states through collective action and learning.
Data science is the art and science of transforming data into actionable knowledge. Knowledge integration is the management, synthesis, and translation of knowledge into decision support systems to guide, influence, and improve decision making, policy, practice, and—ultimately—population health.
