  • Accreditation / Essential Services: After reviewing the logic connecting PHAB Accreditation efforts to improvements in community health, the workgroup made a recommendation to hold an information session about the process of submitting a multi-jurisdictional application for PHAB accreditation. The group felt that the idea of a joint accreditation application was worth exploring and that an information session conducted for respective Boards of Health would help those decision makers assess their options in this important area.
