ACTIVITIES

Making A Difference

NEW ANNUAL FINANCIAL REPORT (AFR) for Local Health Departments

The Ohio 21C Project (Public Health in the 21st Century) developed a tool to measure costs of providing foundational public health services (FPHS) for local health departments (LHDs).  The tool is based on other national costing work and is funded by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) in collaboration with the Public Health National Center for Innovations (PHNCI).  In 2019 the Annual Financial Report (AFR) required by the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) was revised based on this new costing tool.  

 

UPDATE:  Version 2.0 of the Costing Tool and User Guide will be available to LHDs on Monday, January 20, 2020 on the AOHC Members Only website, or from Susan Tilgner at OPHP. 

There was a Webinar for LHDs on Wednesday, January 22, 2020 to review the tool and explain changes made from last year.  A recording of the Webinar is available on the AOHC members only website, or from Susan Tilgner at OPHP.

ACCREDITATION LEARNING COMMUNITY

The Accreditation Learning Community (ALC) began in 2013 as a networking and technical assistance event to help Ohio local health departments pursue national public health accreditation.  The ALC featured expert speakers on performance management, CQI, "How to" of accreditation, preparing documents, site visit preparation, and staff engagement strategies.  The ALCs provided networking, sharing, training and technical assistance in a supportive environment of peers.  

 

The ALC was noted by ASTHO in 2013 as a promising practice, "Collaborative Partnerships for Accreditation Preparation."

ALC success is based on continuous feedback from participants, peer support and meaningful evaluation.  Ohio is able to offer lessons learned to other states or regions interested in promoting public health accreditation, including hosting an ALC for you.  Contact Susan Tilgner, OPHP Executive Director at tilgnersusan@gmail.com for more information.  

Slides from the June 25, 2020 Webinar, "Accreditation & Coronavirus - What Next?"
