NORC has been contracted by the US Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office of Minority Health (OMH), to develop and implement a web-based system for collecting, reporting, disseminating/sharing performance- and results-oriented data and information relative to OMH’s mission.  The Performance Improvement and Management System (PIMS) is an integrated, one-stop, web-based tool and resource to help OMH and other stakeholders to improve the strategic focus of their efforts, use evidence-based performance measures and practices in program planning and evaluation, and improve evaluation of program activities to determine outcomes and impacts achieved. More
