Dear Subscriber,

Public Health Foundation (PHF) E-News brings you the latest information on how you can use performance management, quality improvement, and workforce development to improve the quality and performance of your organization and the health of your community.
New Performance Management Toolkit Just Released
 
Designed to help organizations establish measures, set targets, report on progress, and improve performance, the Performance Management Toolkit will help you understand performance management and how to develop successful performance management systems. Explore the new Performance Management Toolkit, which is comprised of resources and tools including case stories, white papers, and self-assessments that can help you move from learning to application to improve health outcomes.

 

Houston Uses QI to Improve PHAB Documentation
 
When it assembled initial documentation for Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) accreditation, the City of Houston (TX) Department of Health and Human Services (HDHHS) found that just 16% of the documents for a few dozen sample PHAB measures "fully or largely met" the requirements. Following an intense, agency-wide intervention that included quality improvement training from PHF's Train-the-Trainer Series, the department increased its percentage of qualifying documentation to 81%. Find out how HDHHS was able to dramatically improve its documentation and meet PHAB requirements.
 
Superbugs: Resources to Help You Combat this Super Problem
 
Multi-drug resistant organisms, or superbugs, are a serious global public health problem. The rise of superbugs, due in large part to the overuse and misuse of antibiotics, has numerous health consequences, as well as corresponding economic repercussions. See PHF's programs, resources, and training courses that can help you increase awareness and highlight solutions to this growing concern.

 

Streamlining CNE Credit for Nurses in Arkansas: The Value of TRAIN
 
How did the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) improve its continuing nursing education (CNE) process utilizing Arkansas-TRAIN (A-TRAIN)? Discover the answer in a PHF Pulse Blog post by ADH's Amanda Stanisor, who explains how the department increased its capacity to provide evidence-based educational opportunities for nurses across the state through A-TRAIN.
