Welcome to PHUND$
Sustainability of the governmental public health system is dependent principally on the financial health of state and local public health agencies. This is a challenge since public health programs and services are often provided in fiscally challenging environments (e.g., government revenue declines, budget reductions, economic recessions, unfunded mandates). Effective utilization of resources requires that public health professionals have access to timely, reliable, and uniform data to assess agency and system conditions and to use that information to support decisions. Development of the Public Health Uniform National Data System (PHUND$)
responds to that need.
PHUND$ is a web-based public health financial data collection and analysis portal. PHUND$ was created to:
Provide public health agencies with the ability to proactively assess their financial and operational performance
Aid NACCHO in describing and monitoring the financial health and sustainability of the public health system
Promote uniform public health financial management practices
Advance practices that promote quality in public health
Increase public health agency transparency
Confidentially is a core value of PHUND$ and, as such, data collected in PHUND$ is identifiable only by the reporting agency and NACCHO.
At this time PHUND$ is only available to users who created an account prior to July 1, 2015, so that NACCHO can evaluate the portal.
