Validation of new care coordination quality measures for children with medical complexity.
The purpose of this paper was to validate new caregiver-reported quality measures assessing care coordination services for children with medical complexity (CMC). Results showed that 19 newly-developed Family Experiences with Coordination of Care quality measures demonstrated convergent validity with previously-validated CAHPS measures. These new measures are valid for assessing the quality of care coordination services provided to CMC and may be useful for evaluating new models of care focused on improving these services.
