April 2014

Collaborative Partnerships for Accreditation Preparation

This report highlights promising and collaborative practices among state, local, and tribal public health department along with key system partners, that support health department accreditation preparation and readiness. Within this report are a wide range of collaborative strategies that facilitate overall system readiness for public health accreditation, including the areas of: providing consultation and technical assistance, developing and using community health data and assessments, establishing relationships with academia and sharing best practices and models between states and local agencies. These examples may be adapted by other states seeking to develop a collaborative, system wide approach to public health improvement and accreditation readiness.
