This chapter outlines the activities that occur between data collection and data analysis, i.e., data processing and storage. It explores the new area of public health informatics and its application to public health surveillance, including data collection, processing, storage, and management. It discusses the importance of the role of data standards in data management in public health surveillance and the role of the informatician in assisting epidemiologists and surveillance scientists in defining such standards. Finally, the chapter outlines roles and responsibilities for a new crop of information management specialists and public health informaticians as the complexity of health information grows.
