To honor its commitment to building the evidence base for accreditation, PHAB will release data generated through the accreditation process to be used for research purposes only. PHAB remains committed to respecting the confidentiality of health departments that apply for accreditation.
Before requesting data, researchers should review the documents below. You are also encouraged to visit our data portal. If you have any questions, please contact Jessica Kronstadt, Director of Research and Evaluation.
PHAB has developed several documents highlighting key benefits of accreditation. Each will contain a Researcher Addendum, which describes data that are currently being collected that can increase our understanding of the link between accreditation and a specified topic as well as some examples where instruments have been developed that can measure this topic, but where there is no current effort to collect data on a national basis.
