Health Department Accreditation Data Portal
Through the administration of the accreditation program, PHAB collects data about health departments that participate in this voluntary program. The information is captured in the e-PHAB information system. This portal contains three types of data: Accreditation Snapshot, Measures, and Population Health Outcomes. The site is designed to provide two different audiences the ability to gain insight into the performance data collected from the accreditation process. One audience, the general public, can get a sense of aggregate performance in their region or compare health department data through the use of filters. The second audience, accredited health departments, have the ability to see their specific performance data and compare themselves to the aggregate data from other accredited health departments. Individual health department data is confidential; if a user designates filter criteria that could reveal the identity of a specific health department, the system will provide a message to adjust the filter criteria.
