  3. Outline of Presentation • Link to strategic planning session • Link to previous evaluation (2002) • Evaluation Framework – RRFSS Evaluation 2005 • Tasks and Timelines

  4. History • Project was identified in March 2004 • Proposal developed in May 2004 and an Evaluation committee was formed with representation from each of the RRFSS regional working groups • The PHREDs were identified as partners in the project – proposal submitted to them in October 2004 • Terms of reference for the RRFSS group and the PHRED group were finalized in December 2004

  5. Link to Strategic Planning Session

  6. Strategic Planning Session • Strategic Planning Session in December 2004 • To develop strategic statements (vision, mission, values, goals, strategies) that will guide the collective RRFSS work over the next 3 years • To determine the specific objectives and activities for the next year • To create an action document summarizing the directions set

  7. Strategic Planning Session • Vision: RRFSS envisions that all decisions within the public health system to promote and protect health and wellbeing and prevent adverse health events are informed by valid, timely and relevant health intelligence • Mission: Ontario’s RRFSS is a flexible, timely and responsive surveillance system designed to meet local Public Health intelligence needs and address information, geographic and time-related data gaps

  8. Strategic Planning Session • Four strategies were identified: • Advocacy • Communication • Governance • Quality Improvement and Development

  9. Strategic Planning Session • Strategy: Quality Improvement and Development Priority Activity: “Conduct the RRFSS 2005 Evaluation to identify areas of the surveillance system in need of improvement” The full report “Strategic Plan for Action” can be viewed at: www.rrfss.on.ca

  10. Link to RRFSS Evaluation 2002

  11. RRFSS Evaluation 2002 • Covered first year of operation (2001) • Number of health units ranged from 6 to 12 during the evaluation period • Purpose: • Inform change to system procedures • Contribute to continuous quality improvement • Act as a baseline and template for future evaluations The full evaluation report can be viewed at: www.rrfss.on.ca

  12. RRFSS Evaluation 2002 • Evaluation Framework covered 4 areas: • Process Effectiveness • Collaboration Effectiveness • Usefulness • Cost Effectiveness

  13. RRFSS Evaluation 2002 • Performance criteria linked to following outcomes expected from RRFSS: • Increased local awareness of surveillance information • Increased involvement in generating appropriate, accurate information • Increased practice of evidence-based program planning • Demonstrated or potential cost benefit due to RRFSS

  14. RRFSS Evaluation 2002 Fourteen Key Issues Identified(grouped as below for 2005 evaluation) • Local Resources (2) • Centralization Issues • Provincial Implications (3) • Implications for ISR (4) • Process Considerations (5)

  15. Key Issues from 2002 EvaluationLocal Resources • Adequate staff/resources for data analysis and making data useable • RRFSS coordinators overwhelmed by work at the local level

  16. Key Issues from 2002 EvaluationCentralization – Provincial Implications • Need for stability and support for the central work of the RRFSS partnership • Sustaining funding for existing and new participants (smaller health units in particular); includes funding for survey administration and analysis • Provincial representation of data

  17. Key Issues from 2002 Evaluation Centralization – Implications for ISR • Increasing the sample size for a health unit • Access to ISR, decision-making, workload and resources • Improved timeliness of data from ISR • ISR Ability to handle increase in HU participation

  18. Key Issues from 2002 EvaluationProcess Consideration Issues • Increasing use of data in program planning and evaluation in the health units • Limited new question/module capacity under current questionnaire • Process for revising old modules and developing new modules • Upgrading RRFSS website • Sharing data among organizations

  19. RRFSS Evaluation 2005

  20. 2005 Evaluation Framework Objectives • To document progress made in the key areas identified in the 2002 Evaluation • To document some of the “best practices” used by Health Units • To envisage what it would take to get RRFSS on board for all Ontario Health Units and how it could work as a provincial system

  21. 2005 Evaluation Framework Refinement of the Key Issues • To address the evaluation objectives, we began with what were identified as Key Issues in the 2002 Evaluation • Evaluation group members were asked to review each of those 14 Key issues, and: • report on progress • whether it was still an issue now • if so, how important it was for the 2005 evaluation

  22. 2005 Evaluation Framework Refinement of the Key Issues • It was felt that seven issues had been largely addressed, and that the 2005 evaluation needed only to document their evolution since 2002 • The issues that we felt were addressed: • increasing the sample size for a health unit • improved timeliness of data from ISR • access to ISR, decision-making, workload and resources, and • limited new question/module capacity

  23. 2005 Evaluation Framework Refinement of the Key Issues • The issues that we felt were addressed (cont’d): • limited new questionnaire/module capacity under current questionnaire • process for revising old modules and developing new modules • upgrading RRFSS website

  24. 2005 Evaluation Framework Refinement of the Key Issues • The remainder were felt to still be issues for the RRFSS partnership and should remain in the 2005 evaluation • The outstanding issues were refined, defined and expressed as evaluation questions
