States Test Children’s Electronic Health Record Format
AHRQ has published the 10th Evaluation Highlight from the CHIPRA Quality Demonstration Grant Program, now available under What We Learned on the national evaluation Web site. This highlight focuses on the roles of North Carolina and Pennsylvania in the evolution of the children’s electronic health record (EHR) format. Both States are using CHIPRA quality demonstration grant funds to test how well the format’s requirements support the provision of primary care to children and how readily the requirements can be incorporated into existing EHRs. AHRQ is leading the national evaluation of the CHIPRA Quality Demonstration Grant Program, and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is funding the evaluation.

Find information and evaluation reports on State demonstration projects funded by the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act to improve the quality of health care for children enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP.
In February 2010, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) awarded 10 grants, funding 18 States, to improve health care quality and delivery systems for children enrolled in Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Funded by the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 (CHIPRA), the Quality Demonstration Grant Program aims to identify effective, replicable strategies for enhancing quality of care for children. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality is leading the national evaluation of this program.
As a group, the 18 demonstration States are implementing 52 projects in five general categories:
- Using quality measures to improve child health care.
- Applying health information technology for quality improvement.
- Implementing provider-based delivery models.
- Investigating a model format for pediatric electronic health records (EHRs).
- Assessing the utility of other innovative approaches to enhance quality.
- The projects that each demonstration State is implementing (select Learn About the Demonstration States).
- The specific projects being implemented under each of the five categories (select one of the five specific strategies for quality improvement, such as Using the Core Set of Children's Quality Measures).
- Reports that the national evaluation team has produced on specific evaluation topics and questions (select What We Learned).
- Reports and resources provided by the demonstration States (select Reports from the States).
- Our approach to the national evaluation, including the evaluation design and methods (select More about the Evaluation).
- New findings, events, and publications from the national and State evaluations (select What's New?).

Please note: This Web site uses the term "national evaluation" to distinguish this evaluation of the entire demonstration program from evaluations commissioned or undertaken by grantees. The word "national" should not be interpreted to mean that findings are representative of the United States as a whole.
