CARE Award Metrics: Reflections and Rankings

This white paper presents an overview of CARE Award measurement and reflects on where successes were seen, where barriers were encountered, and how these lessons can inform future quality improvement (QI) efforts to implement a clinical transformation model for children with medical complexity (CMC). This paper intends to convey the CARE Award experience in the design and implementation of a measurement set for the project aims with this population.

While the CARE Award experience offers important lessons for future efforts in this area, the measures reviewed in this paper are not necessarily generalizable to all populations of children and youth with special healthcare needs (CYSHCN).
