We are a learning organization committed to results.
We push ourselves to evaluate our efforts against performance metrics and to capture the measurable impacts of our work. Our evaluation approach is guided by an evaluation plan and includes developing a clear theory of change and logic models that define outcomes expected from our work, measuring key performance indicators for each of our goal areas, and creating clear outputs to track our high-impact activities.
Our goal is that people who experience preventable health disparities due to historic and systemic injustices have access to timely, high-quality, and affordable health care services that meet their needs. We are most interested in measuring the outcomes and impact of our strategic activities on progress toward this goal. Each of our goal areas has specific evaluation plans that outline process and impact measures and our approach to collecting and measuring data. Each evaluation plan details specific tools we use to answer the respective evaluation question, including social network analysis, leadership and champion tracking, and pre-/post-surveys. This data tells us whether our strategies and tactics have ultimately influenced our policy and community environments and whether we have reached the short- and long-term outcomes for which we are aiming.
We define success in terms of our impact. Sometimes, the best way to demonstrate that is to start from the beginning.
