State Health System Performance

The State Health System Performance measures show how states serve Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) beneficiaries in six areas:

  • Promoting communication & care coordination
  • Reducing harm in care delivery
  • Promoting prevention & treatment of chronic diseases
  • Strengthening engagement in care
  • Making care affordable
  • Working with communities to promote healthy living

In some cases, states are just beginning to report these voluntary measures. Over time, more states may choose to report these measures and work to incorporate them into quality improvement programs.
