What is performance management?
Performance Management (PM) is the method by which we measure and monitor our progress toward various goals and objectives. Hence, it enables us to utilize a data-driven approach for identifying and prioritizing opportunities for improvement, program development and monitoring. Similarly, it readily allows us to identify successes which we can build upon and apply in other areas. Overall, PM includes the continuous use of standards, measures, reporting and improvement. In essence, PM helps us to monitor our progress
Agency-Wide measures are those measures or goals which apply and/or impact the entire health department and by extension our communities. More specifically, these are measures which affect large groups of people, or the entire population served by Three Rivers. For instance, assessments are broad in scale and address multiple populations or issues affecting large numbers of people. Likewise, plans are implemented across the agency, or community wide such as in the case of preparedness response planning. Lastly,
Programmatic measures apply to a specific program and the population(s) or entities the program was designed to engage. For instance, you will find information on vaccination rates for school aged children as well as the percentage of WIC eligible clients enrolled in the program in the Community Health section. Likewise, the Epidemiology section includes information pertaining to outbreaks and reportable disease incidence. To learn more about Three Rivers program measures, continue scrolling.
