Promote Effective Communication & Coordination of Care

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 effective communication and coordination of care between Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) beneficiaries, their families, and their providers, which can prevent harm and promote improved health outcomes.
