The PHAB Standards and Measures Version 1.0 document provides guidance especially for public health departments preparing for accreditation, as well as site visit teams that meet with health department staff and review documentation submitted by applicant health departments. This document will assist health departments and their Accreditation Coordinators as they select documentation for each measure, and it will direct the site visit team members in the review of documentation and in determining whether conformity with a measure is demonstrated. It also serves anyone offering consultation or technical assistance to health departments, including PHABʼs Board of Directors and Staff as they administer the accreditation program.
