FEATURED: Public Health Accountability Metrics Baseline Report

Oregon leads the nation in tracking the efforts of the public health system to improve health outcomes. In June 2017, Oregon's Public Health Advisory Board established a set of accountability metrics to track progress toward modernization of Oregon's public health system. These metrics emphasize Oregon’s population health priorities, help identify when goals aren’t being met, and identify where public health can work with other sectors to achieve shared goals. The 2018 baseline report provides an in depth look at how Oregon's public health system is doing on meeting these goals.
