Aarkstore Enterprise (India), 10th October, 2013 : Public health is "the science and art
of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the organized efforts
and informed choices of society, organizations, public and private, communities and
individuals." It is concerned with threats to health based on population health analysis. This
definition highlights the role played by members of the community in improving health and
in defining what is socially and publicly acceptable.

There are three main features of public health that define the field and also provide a
contrast to the related field of medicine. Public health and medicine often have the similar
goals of reducing the impact of disease and improving health and quality of life, but there
are some notable differences between the two in the methods of reaching these goals. The
primary features of public health are a (1) a view that all people should have healthcare
access, regardless of social position, (2) a focus on the health of populations rather than
individuals, and (3) a focus on prevention.

The use of social media in public health is taking shape as Twitter and other forms of
social media are leveraged to identify potential outbreaks. Public health data is rapidly
increasing from all sources. Sensors, formerly found only in hospital ICUs, are now portable
and be used at home, and even sometimes while walking. The potential for persistent public
health monitoring may be realized through introduction of machine-to-machine (M2M)
communications, embedded computing/wireless, and related technologies.
