The National Health Information Clearinghouse was established in 1979 to address the issues listed above and has operated continuously since then. It is now called the National Health Information Center (NHIC).

In addition to NHIC, ODPHP also has responsibility for managing the development and implementation of national objectives for health promotion and disease prevention. ODPHP currently manages the Healthy People 2020 initiative, with specific oversight of the Health Communication/Health Information Technology Topic Area; Dietary Guidelines for Americans; Physical Activity Guidelines; healthfinder.gov; and health communication/health literacy and plain language projects; developing Action Plans to reduce avoidable patient harms; and other ODPHP programs.
