The HealthCheck Provider Education System is based primarily on information from the following sources:

  • The HealthCheck Periodicity Schedule developed by the Department of Health Care Finance. The manual was developed in collaboration with many organizations and agencies. The content of this manual is based on the information available at time of publication and will be reviewed and updated periodically.

District of Columbia

The Department of Health Care Finance spearheads the HealthCheck program and has led the initiative to provide training and resources to health professionals in HealthCheck/EPSDT requirements. This office made the Provider Education System possible through a contract with Georgetown University. The District of Columbia's Partnership to Improve Children's Healthcare Quality (DC PICHQ) and the District of Columbia's Collaborative of Medical Directors provided crucial information for the HealthCheck manual, and served as a valuable resource in the development, review, and implementation of the HealthCheck Provider Education System. Their support and enthusiasm added depth and humanity to this project.
