Next Hot Topics Webinar: Performance Management in Wyoming

September 5, 2017

In the September session of Hot Topics in Practice, Policy Administrator Stefan Johansson discusses using data to drive performance in Wyoming state government.

Using data to drive performance is an essential, yet challenging, activity for administrators and program managers in both the private and public sectors. In the September session of Hot Topics in Practice, Policy Administrator Stefan Johansson explains how public health professionals can consider their data in new ways and begin to tackle this daunting task.

In this one-hour presentation, Johansson will review simple questions and policy approaches to help illuminate the value of data and inform future action—even for those with minimal technical skills or statistical backgrounds. He will share examples from various programs in the Wyoming Department of Health to illustrate how their teams have shifted to see their data and themselves in a new light.

Register today to learn about finding the right health data and using them in meaningful ways.
