Who We Are

The Child and Adolescent Health Measurement Initiative (CAHMI) is a national initiative based out of the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. Originally housed at FACCT – Foundation for Accountability, the CAHMI was established in 1998.


The mission of the Child and Adolescent Health Measurement Initiative is to promote early and lifelong health using family-centered data and tools that put children, youth and families at the center of health, health care and public health performance measurement and improvement.


The CAHMI envisions a future where children and families are full partners in a health care system tailored to maximize the healthy development and well-being of children across the life course.


CAHMI’s primary focus to advance Patient-Centered Child Health and Health Care Quality Measurement and Improvement. The CAHMI promotes child and adolescent health through child, youth and family involvement in defining, assessing and improving health care quality and advancing consumer-centered, data-driven policies and practices. CAHMI develops, tests and deploys child health and health care quality data and measures and family-centered tools and strategies for creating successful and sustainable quality measurement, communication and improvement efforts.
