Population health is more than the health of a population—it is a systems framework for studying and improving the health of populations through collective action and learning. By systems I mean socioecological complex adaptive systems.
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 improve policy, practice, and—ultimately—population health.
