Evaluation Highlight No. 5: How are the CHIPRA Quality Demonstration States encouraging health care providers to put quality measures to work?October 2013
This Evaluation Highlight is the fifth in a series that presents interim findings from the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 (CHIPRA) Quality Demonstration Program. The Highlight compares and contrasts two projects that use quality measures to drive quality improvement. It features a pay-for-performance program in Pennsylvania that encourages health systems to support quality improvement using electronic health records (EHRs) and a State-led learning collaborative in South Carolina that supports primary care practices to become more focused on data-driven quality improvement. Our analysis covers the first 2 to 3 years of these 5-year demonstration projects, including a year of planning and 1 to 2 years of implementation.
