Welcome to PHAB’s Data Portal. This site is designed to provide two different audiences – the general public and accredited health departments – with the ability to gain insight into the performance data collected from the PHAB accreditation process.
The general public can get a sense of aggregate performance in their region or compare health department data by using filters.
Accredited health departments can log in to see their specific performance data and compare themselves to aggregate data from other accredited health departments. PHAB is committed to keeping individual health department data confidential; if a user designates filter criteria that could reveal the identity of a specific health department, the system will not share the data and the user will be directed to adjust the filter criteria.
For more information, please see:
On the Initial Accreditation Data page learn how health departments were assessed on the Standards & Measures when they applied for accreditation for the first time (Data on health department assessments when they apply for reaccreditation are coming soon.) On this page you can see how health departments perform in key public health areas such as Community Engagement or Health Equity using the “By Theme” display. You can also view information “By Domain & Standard.”
The display will initially show “Report Assessment Data,” which includes the assessments that are provided to the Accreditation Committee when it has the first opportunity to accredit a health department. However, more than 40% of the time, the Accreditation Committee requires health departments to conduct additional work, called an Action Plan, before they are accredited. If you toggle to the “Action Plan Tab,” you can see if health departments were required to submit additional documentation through the Action Plan process and if they demonstrated improvement.
If you are an accredited health department, you can do the following on the “My Health Department” tab:
There are several icons you will see frequently used throughout the Data Portal.
