Improving Health Outcomes for Children (IHOC)
In Maine, a key objective of the IHOC CHIPRA demonstration grant is to collect and report on the Initial Core Set of Children’s Health Care Quality Measures (referred to as the “CHIPRA Core Measures”), a set of 24 standardized, evidence-based measures identified by CMS for use by State Medicaid and CHIP programs. This report presents the results of the 18 CHIPRA Core Measures that were collected using MaineCare claims, Vital Statistics or survey data and reported to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for FFY 2013. Also included in this report are an additional three measures from the IHOC project’s Master List of Pediatric Measures. In addition to presenting results in graphs and narrative, this report provides measure definitions and background information about each measure topic.
