The QMETRIC Implementation and Quality Improvement project seeks to place children at the center of the health care quality movement. By assessing care for all children within a state, health plan, or health system, QMETRIC will implement its already-developed and validated pediatric quality measures to identify specific ways to improve pediatric population health, including more effective resource utilization and practices promoting better quality of life.
