Public Health Accountability Metrics

In June 2017, Oregon’s Public Health Advisory Board (PHAB) established a set of accountability metrics to track progress towards the modernization of Oregon’s public health system. These metrics emphasize Oregon’s population health priorities and help identify when goals aren’t being met. These metrics also identify where public health can work with other sectors to achieve shared goals.


Public health is tracking eight accountability metrics

Communicable Disease Control

 Two-year old immunization rates
 Gonorrhea rates 

Environmental Health

 Active transportation
 Drinking water standards

Prevention and Health Promotion

 Adults who smoke cigarettes
 Opioid overdose deaths

Access to Clinical Preventive Services

 Effective contraceptive use
 Dental visits for 0-5 year olds
