Fostering Partnerships Within States to Improve Children's Developmental and Preventive Services, Phase 2


In November 2004, the Fund provided a grant to the University of Vermont to support the development of state and local initiatives in Arizona, New York, Rhode Island, Washington, and the District of Columbia to bring together a wide range of stakeholders—from public health departments and Medicaid agencies to pediatric organizations and community organizations—to improve preventive and developmental services for young children. All five sites have successfully matched the Fund's support with local resources to launch the partnership, engaged physician practices in pilot projects to improve developmental services, and mapped out a strategy to sustain the nascent infrastructure for improving children's health care quality in their state or locality. In Phase 2, project staff will bring this quality improvement model to five new states, create a learning community of the new and existing partnerships, and disseminate results nationwide.
