MNAAP's Pediatric Quality Committee is chaired by Marilyn Peitso, MD, FAAP and includes committee members Abe Jacob, MD, FAAP; Michelle Hulse, MD, FAAP; and Emily Chapman, MD, FAAP. Currently the committee is working on a pediatric quality measure development project through 2014 in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Human Services, Seattle Children’s Hospital (Dr. Rita Mangione-Smith, Principal Investigator) and RAND. Pediatricians, Family Physicians, and Nurse Practitioners interested in participating should contact email@example.com
The committee is also supporting pediatric preventive health quality measure reporting through Minnesota Community Measures and providing resources to clinics on quality improvement and meaningful use. It also supports the The Minnesota Child Health Improvement Partnership, a public/private partnership which promotes optimal child/teen health care by creating and supporting continuous quality improvement in clinical practices.
AAP has awarded a grant to MNAAP for a project titled "Health Care for Children and Youth in Foster Care." The lead pediatrician on this project is Amelia Burgess, MD, FAAP, MPH. MNAAP is seeking 4-5 clinics interested in improving pediatric services for children/teens in foster care to participate in this project. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org
