New CHIPRA Evaluation Highlight focuses on elevating children on state policy agendas
October 25, 2013
AHRQ has released its 4th Evaluation Highlight from the national evaluation of the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 (CHIPRA) Quality Demonstration Grant Program. The latest highlight, “How the CHIPRA Quality Demonstration Elevated Children on State Health Policy,” gives concrete examples of activities in five states – Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Vermont, and Oregon – and explains how these states used their CHIPRA quality demonstration grants to advance children’s health care on their states’ health policy agendas. This highlight also describes how states have aligned their efforts with and used their CHIPRA quality demonstration project experiences to directly inform broader federal and state health reform initiatives.
