Accreditation Learning Community

Vision: All Local Health Departments are well-positioned for accreditation

Mission: To improve Local Health capacity and readiness for accreditation through peer collaboration and resource sharing.

The Accreditation Learning Community is a peer network of CT health departments planning for or seeking accreditation and serves as a platform for participants to exchange and discuss accreditation-related tools, resources, and best practices. The Learning Community meets once a month via conference call and focuses on specific accreditation-related issues, such as developing a department's pre-requisites, interpreting PHAB Standards and Measure Version 1.5, and developing an agency's Quality Improvement and Performance Management system.

If you are a local or tribal health department in CT preparing for or seeking accreditation, and would like to participate in the Accreditation Learning Community, please contact Melissa Touma.
