Public Health Improvement Partnership

Performance and Accountability

The work below focuses on the performance management and accountability mechanism which uses public health activities and services, indicators and standards to measure the performance of the public health system in our state.

Public Health Activities and Services

The 2007 legislature required that public health activities and services of significance delivered across the public health system are identified and counted consistently and over time. An annual inventory answers basic questions on what public health does in Washington State.

Local Public Health Indicators

Local public health indicators help measure the health of Washington communities and inform the programs and policies of state and local public health agencies. Together, they provide a snapshot of health status, health behavior, and public health system performance.

National Accreditation

The goal of public health accreditation is to advance the quality and performance of health agencies.
