We are in the process with our Community Health Improvemnet Plan for formalizing objectives and strategies for our priority areas. We have created three action teams but also have created a forth evaluation team for this process, which is made up of people that work with public health data and quality improvement. I was wondering if anyone had any great success stories or methods they used to make their evaluation process effective. Aside from doing things like conducting a root cause analysis for each priority, searching evidence based practice, utilizing available data from our assessments in our planning phases, and forming SMART objectives and strategies for each team, we are also looking at finding unique ways to evaluate the makeup of the public health system in each group (do we have the right people at the table and how do we get them throughout the process), meeting effectiveness throughout planning and implementation, and other unique ways to evaluate the effectiveness of the process and not just the SMART objectives themselves. This has been a learning and growing process for us so any feedback would be much appreciate. Thanks!
