The Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) Partners with Liaison International for eAccreditation

WATERTOWN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- After a comprehensive Request for Proposal (RFP) process, the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) selected Liaison International’s eAccreditation System to manage the accreditation of more than 3,000 health departments. The new system was launched on September 19 following a launch event at the National Press Club. eAccreditation™ is a state-of-the-art, web-based accreditation management system that organizes documents and manages the entire accreditation process—from initial application, through self-study documentation, site visit, accreditation decision and any required follow-up from a given health department—using a comprehensive, systematic approach. eAccreditation is available to specialized and professional accrediting agencies in the US, Canada and Europe, as well as other markets where the assessment of an academic (or other professional) program is conducted by an independent group of peers to ensure that the program being reviewed has met established standards.

PHAB Chief Administrative Officer Mark Paepcke was most enthusiastic about PHAB’s mission and their software partner: “In order to improve the health of the public, the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) is launching a national voluntary accreditation program for Tribal, state, local and territorial public health departments. We are excited to be using eAccreditation™ and to be working with Liaison International to deliver a comprehensive service.”

PHAB is the national accrediting body dedicated to advancing the continuous quality improvement of Tribal, state, local and territorial public health departments. With support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), PHAB helps health departments continue to improve the health of their communities by providing consistent standards so that people across the United States have access to the same range and quality of services.

Liaison International, a 21-year-old privately held company based in Watertown, Massachusetts, provides solutions to educational associations, accrediting agencies and educational programs. The company’s core competencies are Centralized Application Services™ (CAS) for educational associations, Accreditation Management Systems (eAccreditation™) for professional and specialized accrediting agencies, and Annual Survey Systems for the collection of institutional data on behalf of our clients.
