Pediatric Quality Measurement Resources
The AAP is committed to providing our members with opportunities and resources to promote the implementation of clinically relevant quality measures in primary care and subspecialty pediatric practices.
Key challenges in pediatric quality measurement:
- In pediatrics, we continue to see a gap in health care quality.
- Children and families need to remain the central focus of all measurement activities.
- For quality measurement to have the most benefit, it needs to have a meaningful impact at the practice and patient levels.
- Measures should be:
- Relevant and meaningful at the practice level
- Easily integrated into day-to-day practice and workflow
- Scientifically sound
- Aligned with the needs of patients and families
- Aligned to health system decision-making
- Aligned to broad child health aspirational goals
- Aligned to future models of pediatric practice: team care
