How to use the Data Portal

Welcome to PHAB’s Data Portal. The site is designed to provide two different audiences the ability to gain insight into the performance data collected from the accreditation process. One audience, the general public, can get a sense of aggregate performance in their region or compare health department data through the use of filters.

The second audience, accredited health departments, have the ability to see their specific performance data and compare themselves to the aggregate data from other accredited health departments. PHAB is committed to keeping individual health department data confidential; if a user designates filter criteria that could reveal the identity of a specific health department, the system will provide a message to adjust the filter criteria.

For more information, please see:
