10 March 2018 (online)
Objectives: Summarize excellent current research in the field of Public Health and Epidemiology Informatics.
Method: Synopsis of the articles selected for the IMIA Yearbook 2015.
Results: Four papers from international peer-reviewed journals have been selected as best papers for the section on Public Health and Epidemiology Informatics.
Conclusions: The selected articles illustrate current research regarding the impact and assessment of health IT and the latest developments in health information exchange.
