This month, NASHP features its updated interactive map of 2019 State Reporting of Developmental Screening Core Measures. Developmental screening is an important pediatric health care quality measure and the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 features it as one core measure to track and report. NASHP’s updated map shows more states are voluntarily reporting the measure. View other resources at the Healthy Child Development State Resource Center, https://healthychild.nashp.org/.

This month, we feature NASHP’s updated map, States with Standardized Referral Forms. Standardized referral forms shared across a state can make screening, effective referral, care coordination, and feedback loops – which are critical to ensure that children with identified needs receive the care they need – more seamless. As indicated in the updated map, more states are creating standardized referral forms to facilitate this process. View other resources at the Healthy Child Development State Resource Center.
