Promote Effective Prevention & Treatment of Chronic Diseases

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 promoting prevention and treatment of chronic diseases. Encouraging activities such as regular preventive screenings and immunization helps Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) beneficiaries lead healthier lives and reduce medical costs.
