I started at Anne Arundel County Department of Health about 2 months ago, and I'm working on both PHAB accreditation and QI. We are shooting to finalize the document submission by January 2018. I've started talking with other health departments who've gone through both accreditation and the QI implementation process to get a feel for their experiences and timelines. I've developed a workplan (link below) of what I think our process and timeline should look like, and I would love feedback. Do you think this is realistic? Are there any steps I may have missed?
Just as background, our Department conducted a program-level assessment intitaive about two years ago, so most programs have goals, objectives and measures already (but many need to be updated). We currently have no centralized data reporting system or standardized QI activities.
Thanks in advance for any feedback,
