.Message from the Chief Strategy
and Innovation Officer

Welcome to the section of CDC's Internet Web site for the Office of Strategy and Innovation (OSI).  OSI leads CDC's work in implementing the   Dr. Brad Perkins, Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer
agency's Health Protection Goals; provides leadership and vision for formulating and evaluating public health policy; and fosters strategic excellence and innovation across the CDC.

We are working through a process with our internal leadership and experts, our partners, and the public to define a set of objectives for these goals.  These objectives will support the development of Goals Action Plans that will include the objectives, strategies, and actions.  CDC is committed to using the Health Protection Goals to support Healthy People 2010, and planning for Healthy People 2020.

With leadership from CDC's first Chief Policy Officer, we are taking on some tough policy issues for CDC, including looking at the future of our role in immunizations and exploring how we can better leverage external spending to create societal change around some of our best science (e.g., the health associated with tobacco).  We have started work on founding a new virtual "Policy Academy" to help mentor and support CDC's commitment to health policy analysis.

Our focus on strategic excellence and innovation is illustrated by the incredible progress we have made on "Health Impact Planning" for CDC.  With leadership from OSI, CDC now has available a robust Web-based tool that pulls together for the first time all the agency's strategy information, including alignment to the Health Protection goals, budget, and procurement information at the project level.

CDC has its eyes on the future.

We've established a working relationship with the Institute for the Future and are a member of that institute's health project along with a large number of cutting edge private and public sector organizations examining the various forces likely to shape the future of health in the United States and globally.

CDC has also entered an agreement with the New England Complex Systems Institute (NECSI) to use systems dynamic modeling to explore forces likely to accelerate transformation of the health system resulting in increased emphasis on prevention.

We are looking forward to the founding of a "Health Innovation Laboratory"--a dynamic virtual and physical space to develop partnerships, host visitors, and encourage innovation inside and outside of CDC and to define and create the components of the next generation health system.

Stay tuned, and rev up your RSS reader; your WIKIs, EMRs, and PHRs; your DNA array readers, and virtual health coach-enabled mobile phones, and please check back soon.

Please check back for updates and new content in the coming months.

Bradley A. Perkins, MD, MBA
Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer
