Free Webinar on Improving Health Care Quality for Children in Medicaid and CHIP

Join the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on February 11 at 2:00 p.m. EST for the free webinar, "Amplify Your Impact on Child Health Quality: Learning from the CHIPRA Quality Demonstration Grant Program."

Since 2010, AHRQ and CMS have been working together to improve the quality of health care for children enrolled in Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) through the CHIPRA Quality Demonstration Grant Program, which supported quality improvement initiatives in 18 states. This webinar will highlight promising practices and key lessons learned from the 5-year grant program to improve health care quality for children in Medicaid and CHIP. You will also hear about a new opportunity for technical assistance and peer-to-peer learning aimed at States that did not participate in the demonstration so they can benefit from the experiences of the 18 States that did.

Topics include:

  • Supporting primary care practice quality improvement and transformation.
  • Improving service systems for youth with serious emotional disorders.
  • Enhancing States' capacity to report quality measures to providers, families, and stakeholders and promote their use.
  • Building partnerships and capacity to leverage and sustain ongoing quality improvement. 

Advance registration is encouraged, but not required. To register, please visit this registration page.
