Reaching Consensus on Quality Performance Measures for Developmental Services


Recent evidence shows that many children are not receiving the developmental and preventive health services they need. With states increasingly interested in improving the quality of well-child care, experts in pediatric care need to reach a consensus on the best ways to measure and monitor the quality of these services. This project will create a framework for measuring the quality of developmental services and recommend a small set of key measures that states should use to assess and track quality. Results will also be presented to the National Committee for Quality Assurance, the National Quality Forum, and other measurement organizations able to promote use of the new measures by health plans and systems.
