Children require different care than adults and children’s hospitals need quality measures that reflect the unique aspects of working with pediatric patients. While valid measures for child health care and outcomes exist, they do not capture and describe critical areas in child health sufficiently.
CHA represents children and children’s hospitals in health care quality policy, advocacy and regulatory activities, especially with regard to quality measurement and regulatory and accreditation requirements. Learn more about our quality measures policy and advocacy initiatives.
Upcoming event: CHA will feature its latest measures initiative at the Quality and Safety Conference session "National Survey Results: Quality Measures for Accountability in Children's Hospitals" on March 22.
