Community Partnership

This standard examines the agency’s ability to conduct and/or participate in ongoing planning with healthcare system partners, community members and organizations that represent members of priority populations. 


Intervention and Activities

These standards examine the ability of the agency to provide or link priority populations to clinical preventive services.  They also examine the agency’s ability to recommend implementation of evidence-based clinical and community interventions for disease prevention, early detection and self-management.
