The articles in this issue of Frontiers in Public Health Services and Systems Research look at a variety of ways in which public health, clinical practice, and their private sector partners build and deploy knowledge in workplaces and communities for purposes ranging from strategic prioritization to program evaluation to health promotion. Whether procuring data from organizations or individuals, ensuring that these data are analyzed in ways that contribute to process development and implementation, or sharing the resulting findings with external audiences to inform policies and behaviors, those tasked with improving population health outcomes encounter frequent opportunities to use information for maximum impact.
