Hennepin County Public Health Department in Minnesota shares the benefits of PHAB accreditation through a video!
PHAB is the grateful recipient of the first “Accreditation Works!” video! Submitted by Hennepin County Public Health Department in Minnesota, the 3 and 1/2-minute video was developed and produced by a team that included Public Health Director Susan Palchick along with Susan Moore, Lori Imsdahl, Tomoko Townsley, Thia Bryan and the health department’s QI Council. “We are better because of accreditation and want to encourage other departments who are considering accreditation,” said Susan M. Moore, MPA, Accreditation Coordinator at Hennepin County Public Health Department. “With this video we hope to demonstrate our commitment to accreditation and the cornerstones of quality improvement, community engagement, and using data to advance health equity. We thought that video was a more dynamic medium to convey this message.”
