The United Health Foundation has announced a $50,000 grant to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to help pediatricians improve health care delivery.

The grant will further development of the AAP's Education in Quality Improvement for Pediatric Practice (eQIPP) program. This web-based quality improvement initiative supports the implementation of a patient-centered medical home approach for pediatric care.

This approach is based on an ongoing patient-physician relationship and is meant to provide comprehensive primary health care. With this method, pediatricians can evaluate and improve quality of care by earning CME credit toward certification maintenance, comparing practice performance to peer practices on local, regional, and national levels, and gaining access to online references.
