Performance Management – An Introduction

Public Health Accreditation Board Domain 9 – Evaluate and Continuously Improve Processes, Programs and Interventions assures your public health department is working efficiently and effectively. By setting organizational objectives, monitoring progress, and identifying areas for improvement, a health department can progress toward realizing departmental goals. An integrated performance management (PM) system provides a platform for the department to implement performance management processes. Pooja Verma, MPH, Lead Analyst, Performance Improvement from the National Association of County and City Health Officials will demystify PM and share her expertise on getting started with performance management. She will offer practical advice on getting started with PM, what resources and tools are needed to develop a PM system, and what to expect in the process.
