In times of fiscal restraint, public health units are seeking efficient and effective ways of delivering quality services. Emerging technologies can be used to meet these objectives. In particular, electronic survey tools can be used by public health units to improve program evaluations, conduct assessments, collect and analyze program data and create data bases.
This presentation will describe the experience of Ottawa Public Health’s evaluation staff in developing a business case for choosing Fluid Surveys, and subsequent experience with implementing the tool. Benefits, drawbacks and future directions will be highlighted.
