Public health agencies throughout the country are studying accreditation standards to explore how they may be used to help their departments. In the fall of 2011, the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) launched national voluntary public health department accreditation for state, local, and tribal health departments. The goal of the national accreditation program is to improve and protect the health of every community by advancing the quality and performance of public health departments. PHAB standards and measures are an important tool for increasing performance and quality, regardless of a health department’s intent to submit an application for accreditation.

In this pre-conference session, both national and local accreditation experts will describe the basics of accreditation, how the requirements can be used as a tool for improving customer service and performance of health departments, and how to best prepare to meet PHAB standards. Participants will also share with one another their respective best practices for improving quality in their health departments.
