The presenters in this session will provide information that will serve as a framework to measure performance in a public health system. The initial presentation will address a survey of state and public health agencies designed to gather comprehensive data on the structure, activities and responsibilities of state public health and describe how this project created a database and information system to serve as a resource to state public health agencies, public health partners and researchers. As the presentation continues, Columbia University presenters will discuss a survey instrument used across local departments to evaluate performance using network analysis. The session will be enhanced thru the presentation reporting the design and results of an assessment of health performance in Arkansas utilizing the CDC Public Health Performance Standards Program. Finally, the session will end with information on a performance management system utilizing the Turning Point Collaborative Model and how it is used to evaluate quality improvement.
