Accreditation is the act of granting credit or acknowledgment to an institution that meets essential requirements and maintains a quality standard established by a recognized entity.
For governmental public health organizations, accreditation by the Public Health Accreditation Board conveys that the standard expectations for improving and protecting the health of the public and advancing the quality and performance of public health service are being met.
Maintaining the standards set for accreditation stimulates quality and performance improvement opportunities for members of organizations, helps organization leaders to identify agency strengths and weaknesses and provides a framework for documentation of the department’s capacity to deliver the core functions and essential services for public health. Accreditation also promotes greater accountability and improves management processes.
