6 Prevention Agenda 2013-2017 Five Statewide Priorities
Prevent Chronic Diseases Promote a Healthy and Safe Environment Promote Healthy Women, Infants and Children Promote Mental Health and Prevent Substance Abuse Prevent HIV, STDs, Vaccine Preventable Diseases and Healthcare Associated Infections

7 Prevention Agenda 2013-2017 For each priority, action plans contain:
Goals (at least one per priority) Measurable objectives including some on disparities 3-5 measures per priority: at least one impact/outcome measure and at least two process measures Evidence based and promising practices sorted by sector and by health impact pyramid. January 11, 2013

8 Pre-Requisite - CHA Community Health Assessment (CHA): Part of a strategic plan that describes the health of the community by collecting, analyzing and using data to educate and mobilize communities, develop priorities, garner resources, and plan actions to improve public health. Mandated for local health departments as per New York State Public Health Law §6. -Working Definition, New York State Department of Health Assessment : the process of regularly and systematically collecting, assembling, analyzing, and making available information on the health needs of the community, including statistics on health status, community health needs, and epidemiologic and other studies of health problems. Source: Lessons learned from our processes – good and bad (?) Time it took for completion, parties involved

9 Pre-Requisites - CHIP Priorities aligned with assessment findings and clearly articulated Specific, measurable goals/objectives Evidence-based or best practice strategies Explanation of the process in assessment, priority-setting, and action plan, and the roles of community partners Measures to track process and outcomes and reporting of lessons learned

17 CHA Review - Challenges
Tracking and evaluation of interventions Balancing process and outcome measures Adapting evidence-based or best-practice interventions to local context Identify tangible roles for partners

18 Accreditation Self-Assessment
Project Management Tools Project Charter Work Plan Timeline Team Membership Team Structure per Domain Cross-Cutting Teams Over 100 internal staff involved in accreditation self- assessment

19 Documentation Selection
 Quality Improvement Tools Brainstorming “A method for a group to generate a large number of ideas around an issue of interest.” Nominal Group Technique “A process that helps teams prioritize by consensus.” Improved participation, efficiency, and sense of ownership over the process. Brainstorming: Focus, Participation, and creativity are key

20 Documentation Storage & E-PHAB
SharePoint and Shared Drives for Documentation Storage E-PHAB

21 Lessons Learned Planning within each phase is important
Use tools available to you to structure and organize (Project charter, QI Tools, SharePoint) Involve others to create buy-in and support
