We can do this for the health of our family and the health of our economy.
Healthy & safe communities
All Washingtonians deserve access to high-quality and affordable health care. They also expect to be safe and protected in their community, on the road and at work. We’ve developed preliminary outcome measures that focus on ensuring all Washingtonians are healthy, safe and supported.

What do these terms mean
Definitions for performance measurement terms may be helpful as you review the draft measures and indicators (PDF) above.There are three levels of information to think about for each of Gov. Inslee's goals.
- Goal topic: each goal is broken up into specific goal topics that organize how we define and measure progress on the larger goal.
- Outcome measure: each goal topic includes one or more outcome measures that identify the results we want to achieve over time.
- Leading indicators: the progress on each outcome measure is determined by a set of specific, detailed, quantifiable indicators. This is the data our state agencies regularly report to the Results Washington team.
Governor's goal council
Results Washington is distinctive for a number of reasons, including the cross-agency collaboration to draft the goals, outcome measures and leading indicators. The agencies listed to the left participated as a goal council in the preparation of the first drafts now available to the public and others for comment. They, and other state agencies and partners, will be working together to achieve the goals of Results Washington to provide a data-driven approach to decision making and making that process open and transparent to the public.
