Abstract

Many State Health Departments (SHDs) are considering or preparing for voluntary accreditation through the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB). With the 2014 release of PHAB's Standards & Measures Version 1.5, health departments must adhere to specific documentation criteria regarding measures for public health surveillance. This presentation will provide one SHD's approach to identifying appropriate documents to meet the public health surveillance measures from a public health informatics perspective. A document selection matrix may be helpful to other SHDs considering accreditation.
