CHIPRA Evaluation Highlight No. 13 Now Available
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has published the thirteenth Evaluation Highlight from the CMS-funded CHIPRA Quality Demonstration Grant Program, now available on the national evaluation Web site under What We Learned. This Highlight describes the experiences of nine CHIPRA quality demonstration States that implemented learning collaboratives to advance the quality of children's health care in participating child-serving practices. States and practices found that a combination of strategies were needed to help practices improve medical home capacity and/or performance on clinical quality measures. Those strategies included offering incentives to encourage practice participation in the collaborative, combining classroom and interactive learning to keep practices engaged in the collaborative, and providing individualized practice facilitation and support.
