Section 4: Joint Performance Measures

This section contains joint PMs between HPP and other programs, including HRSA’s Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) program. These PMs are aligned to the requirements of the 2017-2022 Health Care Preparedness and Response Capabilities and the FOA. For a crosswalk of PMs to the 2017-2022 Health Care Preparedness and Response Capabilities, see Appendix 3: Crosswalk of Performance Measures to 2017-2022 Health Care Preparedness and Response Capabilities.

Recipients and HCCs will not report data on these PMs to HPP. EMSC and PHEP will collect this information as part of their grants and cooperative agreements and will share the data with HPP and SPPR.

The following table lists the data entity—the organizational level at which the data are captured (Recipient or HCC)—and PM type for each PM:


Measure (PM)

Performance Measure (PM) Definition​

Data Entity

The definitions for the PM types are:

  • Activity: Actions that use or involve HPP inputs; and,
  • Outcome: Changes or benefits resulting from program activities and outputs. Outcomes can be intended or unintended, positive or negative, and are often divided into short-, intermediate, and long-term timeframes.
