IMPROVING HEALTH OUTCOMES FOR CHILDREN (IHOC)—CHIPRA QUALITY DEMONSTRATION GRANT IN MAINE
The Master List of Pediatric Measures was developed as part of the Maine CHIPRA Quality Demonstration Grant. Through intensive stakeholder engagement, key stakeholders from across the state worked together to develop a comprehensive list of pediatric measures that includes the CHIPRA Initial Core Set of Children’s Health Care Quality Measures as well as additional clinically relevant pediatric quality measures. Measures are based on clinical guidelines and a broad base of support. To encourage adoption of child health quality measures across a variety of measurement and quality improvement activities, this Master List also reflects IHOC’s emphasis on alignment. Examples of national alignment include the CHIPRA Initial Core Set; CMS priority areas related to Medicaid’s Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) benefit, obesity, oral health, and behavioral health; the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Bright Futures guidelines; the National Committee on Quality Assurance; the National Quality Forum; and the CMS EHR Incentive Program for Meaningful Use.
