The National Association of Public Health Statistics and Information Systems (NAPHSIS), the national membership organization representing vital records and vital statistics offices and professionals in the United States, seeks an excellent communicator and collaborative leader to build on the credibility and established reputation of this maturing nonprofit organization. At some point, each of us will need to use a birth certificate to prove our identity, citizenship or family relationship or a death certificate to handle affairs after the death of a loved one. Vital records serve as a keystone source of legal information on births, deaths and other vital events and provide statistical data that are essential components of monitoring public health. These data also serve as the source of key indicators of population health. In addition to evaluating public health trends and guiding limited health resources, responding to disasters, and exploring electronic health data exchange; NAPHSIS and its members are active partners with law enforcement agencies and benefit paying organizations in the fight to prevent fraud and identity theft.
The next executive director of NAPHSIS will have a credible platform to build toward dynamic growth and innovation through ever-changing technology and the expanded use of vital statistics throughout the public health and fraud prevention arenas. The next executive director of NAPHSIS will be challenged with balancing the public health application of vital statistics, the business and operational needs of vital records offices, with the non-governmental agency and business demand for data.
