The National Standards for CYSHCN: A Compendium of National Data and Quality Measure Sets

By: Hannah Eichner and Kate Honsberger

Quality measurement is a critical component of state health programs, including Medicaid and State Title V CYSHCN programs. This new compendium highlights quality measures aligned with key elements for a system of care for children and youth with special health care needs, as outlined in the National Standards of Care for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs. This tool compiles data and quality measures from applicable and widely used measure sets. Identification of data and quality measures can help states evaluate how well their system of care is serving CYSHCN.
