The MPROVE Study

Multi-network Practice and Outcome Variation Examination
Developing Service Delivery Measures for Studies of Practice Variation

A primary aim of the MPROVE study was to define a workable set of measures of local public health service delivery in three domains of activity -- communicable disease control, chronic disease prevention, and environmental health protection.

The MPROVE Study Measures were developed by Practice-Based Research Network (PBRN) investigators from six states: Colorado, Florida, Minnesota, New Jersey, Tennessee, and Washington. These PBRN states represent nearly 300 local public health jurisdictions.

PHAST has completed the initial refinement of MPROVE Study Measures in consultation with public health practitioners, content experts, and public health systems researchers. The revised Measures will serve as the template for a nationwide system for standardized reporting of public health activities and services.
