Helping the CDC Chronic Disease Center Roll out New Metrics
PHIL facilitated a working group across six states for the Center for Disease Control’s National Association of Chronic Disease Directors. States previously reported to the CDC on 200 different measures, including many for which data were difficult to access. This new PHIL-supported effort enabled State Chronic Disease Directors to create new criteria for Chronic Disease Funding performance measures that better reflect the reality of reporting states. This PHIL-supported effort will streamline reporting and enable more effective demonstration of meaningful impact.
