Recently, there has been an increased demand by stakeholders (including funders, decision-makers and the public) for demonstrated accountability represented by measured results, readily available information, and evidence informed decision-making. This presentation will provide an overview of a program performance measurement system that was designed to address these needs. This system has been implemented at Hamilton Public Health Services across 35 programs, involving 250 staff.

The process for developing a performance measurement system consists of working collaboratively with teams, using an innovative phased approach including logic model & indicator development, indicator quality assessment & operationalization, pilot testing, and a process for reporting results and facilitating team discussions about implications. During this lecture participants will acquire knowledge and skills to develop and implement a program performance measurement system within their organization.
