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 includes tracking long-term ambitions, outlining performance indicators through a theory of change, creating clear outputs to track our high-impact activities, and defining outcomes expected from our work.
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 priority initiatives and core program 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, constituent and champion tracking, pre-/post-surveys, and process quality scales. 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.
