During the month of November, PPHR applicants responded to reviewer requests for additional evidence for certain PPHR criteria elements that were scored partially met or not met. PPHR reviewers then reassessed their scores for these elements based on the new materials applicants provided, with NACCHO staff providing technical assistance. Reviewers will discuss their adjusted scores with those of their teammates during conference calls with NACCHO staff in December.
In addition to providing technical assistance to 2014 applicants, state leads, and reviewers, all 2015 applicants have declared their intent to apply for recognition and NACCHO has begun working with these prospective 2015 applicants as they begin preparing for the next review cycle. NACCHO continues to promote PPHR and PPHR re-recognition to prospective applicants for future review cycles.
