The US Department of Health and Human Services has announced grants of $10m to Pennsylvania through the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) to improve quality of healthcare for children.

The five-year grant will allow the departments of Insurance and Public Welfare to create Quality Improvement and Care for Kids through Electronic Programs – QUICKSTEPS – to improve health outcomes for almost one million children in the Medical Assistance and CHIPRA programmes.

The departments will partner with seven health systems essential to Medical Assistance and CHIPRA in developing QUICKSTEPS.

QUICKSTEPS will be implemented through the use of paediatric electronic health records that have pre-visit screening capabilities and a referral linkage system.

The effective use of electronic health records transfers clinical information collected across the continuum of care, between different healthcare settings and social agencies and improves the quality and coordination of care.
