Performance Management Applications in Public Health


As part of the Turning Point Performance Management Refresh activity and the development of the Performance Management Toolkit, the Public Health Foundation (PHF) compiled examples of performance management applications in public health. These one-page overviews demonstrate how health departments have been successful in applying a customized approach to strategically improve the performance of their agency to better serve and improve the health of the community. Each overview includes an image of the performance application, a summary paragraph, and the health department contact for more information. View all 10 overviews or download them individually below. 


Update: In 2017, PHF added more recent examples of performance management in practice. To share your health department’s performance management application, email
