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.
