By maintaining consistency with the 2004 NYC HANES, the second survey provides citywide trend information to evaluate the impact of many municipal policies on health. Furthermore, this innovative project is evaluating the potential for using electronic health records (EHR) for public health surveillance by comparing EHR-generated surveillance indicators to those derived from a 2013-4 population-based health survey, and will provide guidance for national, state and local organizations seeking to use EHRs for this purpose.
