Issue Brief - IHOC Measure Selection
This brief describes Maine’s process for selecting child health quality measures, including identified strengths and limitations of the CHIPRA core measures that led to the inclusion of additional state-specific measures and the factors considered for selection. Subsequent articles will describe how measures have been implemented and used to improve child health quality and how they have been integrated into systems of care (e.g. health information technology systems, policy changes).
