Joseph Gibson's, MPH, PhD presentation topic is "From an Edsel to a Mustang: Moving a national health monitoring system from the doldrums to success".  ~~In 2010, the BioSense platform was another CDC “data sponge” – it pulled emergency data from some state public health jurisdictions to the CDC, but provided little of value back. The senders had little interest in the system, so much of the data was unreliable. Since 2010, the CDC has worked with the broader public health community to evolve BioSense into a much more valuable system, supported by a broad user community.  Joe Gibson will discuss the steps and missteps that led to BioSense’s current success.

~~Joe Gibson was the founding chair of the national BioSense Governance Group, serving as chair or ISDS representative from 2011 to 2016. He received the International Society for Disease Surveillance (ISDS) Heffernan Award in 2014 for his role in BioSense’s success. 
Since 2003, Joe has been the Director of Epidemiology at the Marion County Public Health Department, serving Indianapolis, Indiana.  He chairs the informatics workgroup for the national association of local health agencies (NACCHO) and has been active in many national public health informatics efforts.  He also works with the Regenstrief Institute to create public health informatics tools that leverage the clinical health information exchange.
