National Public Health Performance Standards Program State Public Health System Assessment (OMB 0920-0557 exp. 8/31/2010)--Extension--Office of State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The Office of State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support is proposing to extend the formal, voluntary data collection that assesses the capacity of state public health systems to deliver the essential services of public health. Electronic data submission will be used when state health departments complete the public health assessment.
A three-year approval is being sought with the current data collection instrument. The data collection instrument has been valuable in assessing performance and capacity and identifying areas for improvement.
From 1998-2002, the CDC National Public Health Performance Standards Program convened workgroups with the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), the National Association of Local Boards of Health (NALBOH), the American Public Health Association (APHA), and the Public Health Foundation (PHF) to develop performance standards for public health systems based on the essential services of public health. In 2005, CDC reconvened workgroups with these same organizations to revise the data collection instruments, in order to ensure the standards remain current and improve user friendliness. There is no cost to the respondent, other than their time.
