Make Care Safer by Reducing Harm

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services organizes measures in the state health system performance pillar of the Scorecard using the domains defined in the Meaningful Measures initiative. The initiative identifies the highest priority areas for quality measurement and improvement. The measures in this domain focus on preventing harm caused in the delivery of care, which can make care safer for Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) beneficiaries.
