Accreditation of public health programs and organizations is a fairly new concept, but an extremely important one. In keeping with the importance of accreditation of healthcare entities on the private healthcare side, seeking and achieving accreditation lends professional credence to any public health program or entity that achieves it. The accreditation process enhances the performance improvement plans and initiatives of an organization, thereby validating the programs’ usefulness.
For creating a performance improvement plan, you need to gain an understanding of the terminology and guidelines used for accreditation of the state and local public health departments.
