NACCHO Releases New Accreditation & QI Resources for Local Health Departments

QI Roadmap

NACCHO’s Accreditation & QI Team is pleased to announce the official launch of the Roadmap to a Culture of Quality Improvement (QI Roadmap) Website. With input from local health department (LHD) practitioners and extensive review of the literature, this resource was developed to provide LHDs with guidance on progressing through six phases or levels of QI maturity until a culture of quality can be reached and sustained. For each phase, the Roadmap presents common organizational characteristics, strategies, and supplemental resources for transitioning to the next phase. The QI Roadmap also describes six foundational elements of a QI culture that LHDs should cultivate over time. Whether a novice or advanced in QI, any LHD can adapt the QI Roadmap as a guide to understanding the current state and identifying next steps for advancing toward a QI culture. Explore the website or download a PDF version of the QI Roadmap. NACCHO will be continuously populating the website with more resources so please check back frequently. Contact Pooja Verma at 202.507.4206 or pverma@naccho.org for more information.

Documentation Selection Tools

NACCHO is also pleased to release a new set of tools called the Documentation Selection Tools. These tools are designed to facilitate the process of accreditation preparation in local health departments. There are several tools available that highlight connections between measures that appear across different PHAB domains, simplify the preparation of major documents required by PHAB, and drive efficiencies in assigning and organizing the documentation collection process.

Several tools are currently available:

  • Selecting Programmatic Documentation
  • Programmatic Documentation Matrix
  • PHAB Prerequisites
  • Workforce Requirements
  • Project Public Health Ready (PPHR) Overlap
  • More!

Please note that NACCHO recommends these tools be used in conjunction with PHAB’s tools and resources. Although the Documentation Selection Tools largely use language verbatim from PHAB’s Standards and Measures Version 1.0, PHAB’s documents must be considered the official resources for all PHAB procedures and requirements. Some measures require more than one piece of documentation – always consult the Standards and Measures before submitting documentation.

If you have questions about the Documentation Selection Tools or would like more information, contact Lowrie Ward at lward@naccho.org.

 

Accreditation Standards for Public Health – 12 Domains

Templates for the 12 Accreditation Domains are available in MindManager. Please contact Pat Lopez at jpnic75@aol.com or Rita Parris at publichealthne@cs.com if you would like a copy. You will need to have a MindManager software license to use the templates.

 

Public Health Preparedness Capabilities: National Standards for State and Local Planning Priority Resource Elements

Courtesy of Sachin Bagade the 15 Capabilities have now been put into MindManager. There are TWO different template formats: 1) A single map with all 15 Capabilities; and 2) 15 separate maps for each of the 15 Capabilities. Please contact Rita at publichealthne@cs.com if you would like a copy. You will need to have a MindManager software license to use the templates.

Here is a link to NACCHO’s website where they have posted some short videos about accreditation for local governing entities: http://www.naccho.org/topics/infrastructure/accreditation/lge.cfm.

 

The Public Health Performance Improvement (PHPI) Toolkit

The Public Health Performance Improvement (PHPI) Toolkit is an online collection of tools such as archived trainings, sample QI products, templates, and related resources. What makes the PHPI toolkit unique is that all the products have been developed by your public health peers through their own efforts to implement performance improvement activities and prepare for national voluntary accreditation. The toolkit is continuously updated with new additions from the work of NNPHI programs, members, and national partner organizations. If you have a new resource to add, please contact apattnaik@nnphi.org.
