Historically, public health has been at the forefront of data processing applications but it is lagging behind other areas of health care in the application of advanced interconnected and mobile information technologies. Ready to use technologies are lacking not only for the management of emerging infections or bio-terrorism but also for the coordination of prevention and chronic care initiatives. Advanced information and knowledge management for community health should expedite the transfer of research evidence to practice and provide essential logistical support for action. We need to find ways to integrate new scientific knowledge into our environment in order to expedite the translation of research to practice.
