Associated Project:Oral Health
This project addressed the need for oral health performance measures that are applicable to oral health safety net dental programs, the Child Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA), the Medicare and Medicaid core measures set, and for use by other implementers. It built on work by HHS, the Dental Quality Alliance, and others to identify oral health measures throughout the measure pipeline, including measure concepts and recognize where there are gaps in measures and prioritize measures for further development and testing. The project focused on measures applicable to all populations, with specific focus on children and other vulnerable populations.
