31 ‘How much does each of the following represent a barrier to accreditation for your organization?’ Percent of LHDs rating each barrier as high (4 or 5 on a 5-point scale) (n=79) OHPA/APHA

33 How much help do you need with each element below as you consider accreditation? (% of LHDs who rated each element ‘high’) (n=79) OHPA/APHA

34 “We work with neighboring LHDs on accreditation preparation” “You didn't ask about financial responsibility -- that will be difficult -- but maybe in 3-5 years, the economy will have improved.” “Accreditation working group for small LHDs” “Encouragement/expectations from ODH” How much help do you need with each element below as you consider accreditation? Other (please specify) (N=4) OHPA/APHA

35 If you could share information with those who are considering accreditation in the future, what would be the three most important things you'd tell them? (N=19) Financial Cost – “Keep track of expenses…this is an expensive process when you start to consider staff time.” – “How to pay.” Time Cost – “Expect additional work and plan for the time.” – “Start early, if it's a multi-year process and an ongoing commitment.” – “Requires a lot of time and commitment on everyone's part… a hard obstacle to overcome if yours is a small department.” OHPA/APHA

36 Documentation – “You most likely have more documents than you think. They just need to be updated for PHAB standards (dates, labels)” – “Keep s.” Benefits – “While it is time consuming, it does make you a better health department. It is worth the effort simply if it raises your awareness.” – “The value is in the process, not the outcome.” – “Use accreditation to improve and market your LHD.” If you could share information with those who are considering accreditation in the future, what would be the three most important things you'd tell them?

41 Summary 61% survey response; generally representative of Ohio LHDs The largest number of respondents are in the “moderate” readiness category, followed by “low”, then “high” readiness Respondents are moderately familiar with national accreditation; greater readiness corresponds with greater familiarity Respondents have received useful information from AOHC newsletters, NACCHO, and friends/colleagues. Health departments with high readiness were most likely to have used the PHAB website OHPA/APHA

42 Summary Most LHDs have discussed accreditation at staff meetings; almost half have attended workshops/conferences Highest barriers to accreditation are cost and time commitment Respondents need help with accessing sample documents, accessing best practices in the PHAB domain, and training on the accreditation process OHPA/APHA
