New Mexico Department of Health Strategic Plan, "Turn the Curve" Indicators

Turn-the-Curve is a process of positively changing the course of unwanted health trends through the development of performance standards and measures, progress reports, and ongoing performance and quality improvement. Results-Based Accountability (RBA) is a quality improvement model that focuses on population health improvement as the end goal, with program performance as a means to that end. The usefulness of the RBA approach is that it starts with the desired end in mind (outcome) and develops a set of evidence-based and evaluated strategies to attain the outcome.
