Check Out the Newly Redesigned DRC Website!      
The CAHMI has partnered with Title V and family leaders to create an updated look and feel for the Data Resource Center website (http://childhealthdata.org)! In addition to a more modern look, the new website is designed to make it even easier to access our many resources, including:

Online Data Query Tool Now Available for Title V National Outcome and Performance Measures, NHIS Data Query Tool Adds State and Area Level Findings!
Many of the new Title V National Performance Measures (NPMs) and National Outcome Measures (NOMs) use data from the National Survey of Children's Health (NSHC) and National Survey of Children With Special Health Care Needs (NS-CSHCN). In order to make it easier for states to access and interactively explore and compare NOM and NPM data findings from the National Survey of Children's Health (NSCH) and the National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs (NS-CSHCN), the CAHMI has made the data available in a special section of the DRC's interactive data query highlighting these Title V Block Grant measures. The data for the measures are available by state and by numerous subgroups, including those required for the Block Grant, and will be updated as future NSCH and NS-CSHCN data becomes available. More educational materials are also available.
In addition, we have added state- and census division-level data from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) to the existing NHIS data on the DRC data query. Four years of survey data (2010-2013) were combined in order to provide valid state subgroup data. At the national level, the child and family health indicators can also now be stratified by Metropolitan Statistical Area and Rural-Urban Commuting Area.
Please check out both of these new data query features at http://childhealthdata.org/browse, and let us know what you think!
This is the spot where we would have told you to come visit us at AMCHP...
Unfortunately, this year's Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs (AMCHP) Annual Conference has been cancelled due to the blizzard conditions that occurred in Washington, DC over the weekend. If they are able to reschedule the conference at a later date, we will let you know about our booth number and planned workshop (Leveraging Existing Partnerships, Models, and Resources to Advance Data-Driven Improvement in MCH National and State Outcomes and Performance Measures). Until then, we hope you managed to stay safe and warm this past weekend!
Spanish Translation of Well Visit Planner Toolkit
This past spring, CAHMI partnered with Family Voices to create a toolkit to assist families and family advocates in the use of the Well Visit Planner (WVP) (see our August 2015 newsletter for more information). Spanish translations of most of the documents, including the newsletter, FAQs, flyer, and some of the videos are now available. We hope that this will expand the number of families and young children who are able to benefit from using the WVP!
