  • As part of the evaluation of Maine’s Improving Health Outcomes for Children (IHOC) initiative, the University of Southern Maine surveyed pediatric and family practices during the early stages of IHOC in 2011, and again during the final year of the initiative in 2014. A new report summarizes the results of the 2014 survey and also provides a comparison of data from 2011 and 2014 to provide information on how statewide quality improvement has changed in Maine’s child-serving practices. In addition, results are also presented on 2014-only survey questions, which cover IHOC and First STEPS-specific topics. The report can be accessed at: http://www.maine.gov/dhhs/oms/pdfs_doc/children_IHOC/Child%20Health%20Quality%20Improvment%20in%20Maine%20Practice%20Survey%20Report%202011-2014.pdf.
