We are delighted to congratulate Johnson County Health & Environment Department (JCHED) for gaining national accreditation through the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB). Receiving PHAB Accreditation is fantastic! PHAB reports that “44 public health departments have achieved national accreditation as of June 18, 2014…” and that is out of the thousands of HD’s across the country. We are proud to have played a piece of the support role in serving as JCHED’s consultant in strategic plan & implementation development and ongoing implementation tracking. The following is a direct quote from their site visit report:
“JCDHE in some ways may have a model performance management system. Based on its strategic plan, performance measures were developed, a monitoring system was created, and a structural system for reviewing the data and discussions for improvement occurs.”
This was referring to both the WePlanWell® system as well as their ongoing policy and practice of quarterly plan assessment reviews and reporting.
As you can imagine, we were all pretty excited about this! To read more on JCHED news, click here.
