Using Wellness Assessments to Improve Care
The CHIPRA Massachusetts Medical Home Initiative is a project to help 13 pediatric practices in Massachusetts successfully implement a medical home model of care.
Aggregate results for the 13 practices shows an increased implementation of wellness assessments from 62 percent to 80 percent for ages 2-4; 63 percent to 94 percent for ages 5-12; and 80 percent to 94 percent for ages 13-18.
That means approximately 20,000 more children are receiving comprehensive wellness assessments and appropriate immunizations each year in these practices as a result of their transformation into a medical home.
