Child Health Advances Measured in Practice (CHAMP)


CHAMP's long-term goal is to increase the efficiency, economy, and quality of care provided to Medicaid-eligible children and families. Building on the momentum of Bright Futures and Vermont's health care reform activities, this initiative creates a multi-year network of practices that engage in collaborative improvement activities to meet the evolving needs of health care professionals, children and families. Recruitment will begin in June 2015.


CHAMP creates a longitudinal approach to improving health outcomes for Vermont children, youth and families.

  • Expert guidance on applying Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) standards to your practice;
  • Hands-on support in assessing your current systems;
  • Access to shared templates and tools to help you improve office systems; and
  • Coaching on identification and tracking of clinically important measures to demonstrate improvements in care.
