Each month, NASHP’s Healthy Child Development State Resource Center features a resource highlighting the role of screening, referral and care coordination for healthy child development.
This month’s feature are two newly launched pages of the Resource Center on Measurement and Referral that may help state policymakers, service providers, and researchers promote children’s healthy growth and development. The maps contained in these new pages display state reporting of the CHIPRA Core Set measure for developmental screening and use of standardized referral forms to facilitate communication about children’s receipt of indicated follow up services. The CHIPRA map shows that twenty states report the developmental screening Core Set measure to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The referral form map shows that 14 states have a standardized form to facilitate child access to follow up services. Learn more on the new Measurement and Referral pages.
If you have a resource you’d like NASHP to post in the Resource Center or feature in the future, please email email@example.com. The Healthy Child Development State Resource Center is supported by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
