The Covid 19 pandemic revealed the need for Public Health Agencies to mature digitally. To help those agencies with their digitalization endeavor, a public health agency maturity model (PHAMM) has been developed, evaluated, and employed by 366 institutions to determine their digital maturity and to prior-itize actions within digitalization projects. This paper discusses the digital ma-turity of German public health institutions and derives first insights into compo-nents spanning the PHAMM dimensions. Public health agencies can use these components to leverage their digital maturity in future digitalization projects. Im-plications are discussed for how digitalization projects with an enhanced impact can be defined and for future maturity modeling research.
