Providing Evaluation Technical Assistance for NYSHealth Grantees
NYSHealth implemented a program of technical assistance for its grantees to train them in evaluation techniques. Led by the Center for Health Care Strategies, a team of evaluation professionals is providing one-on-one intensive assistance to some of our grantees to teach them how to determine if, how, and for whom their projects are having their desired outcomes. The training includes the use of logic models, establishing measurable outcomes, collecting and analyzing data, and communicating project findings.
In addition, NYSHealth is conducting daylong workshops on evaluation for our grantees in various parts of the State. The workshops enable grantees to strengthen their evaluation capabilities, and to network with and learn from fellow organizations. NYSHealth’s commitment to evaluation reflects its desire to be an accountable organization that achieves tangible impact, as well as our move into providing “beyond the check” activities that enhance our grantmaking.
