MNAAP is working on a pediatric quality measure development project through in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Human Services, Seattle Children’s Hospital (Dr. Rita Mangione-Smith, Principal Investigator) and RAND.
We are also supporting pediatric preventive health quality measure reporting through Minnesota Community Measures and providing resources to clinics on quality improvement and meaningful use. Finally, we support 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
