Expanding Use of the Promoting Healthy Development Survey


With Fund support, the Child and Adolescent Health Measurement Initiative developed the Promoting Healthy Development Survey (PHDS), the first survey of parents to gauge the quality of preventive and developmental services provided to young children. The instrument has been validated and tested with nine state Medicaid agencies, four health plans, 46 pediatric practices, and a national survey. Those currently using the PHDS—state agencies, health plans, and pediatric providers—have reported that the information it provides is helpful in assessing, stimulating, and monitoring quality improvement activities. This project will develop tools to administer, complete, and score the survey on the Web. In addition, the team will implement a strategic plan for dissemination of the PHDS to national organizations, state health policy officials, health plans, and health care providers.
