EPSDT Inter-Rater Reliability Analysis 2004-2005
April 01, 2005
The Early and Periodic Screening and Diagnostic Testing (EPSDT) Program provides age-specific standards for preventive and primary care services for Medicaid-eligible children. To monitor compliance with program requirements, the state of Maryland commissions a team of nurses to conduct annual record reviews of a sample of certified providers. The Hilltop Institute (as the Center for Health Program Development and Management) carried out an inter-rater reliability evaluation to assess the consistency of nurses' ratings.
