CHIPRA Evaluation Highlight

The tenth Evaluation Highlight from the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) Quality Demonstration Grant Program is now available 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. The experiences and feedback from North Carolina and Pennsylvania have implications for States and other stakeholders interested in using EHRs as a tool for measuring and improving children's health care quality.
