Virginia Moyer, MD, MPH, ABP's Vice President for Maintenance of Certification and Quality, co-authored an article published in Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). Dr. Moyer also serves as the chair of the US Preventive Services Task Force.

Moyer, along with Coleen A. Boyle, PhD, and James M. Perrin, MD, focused on the use of clinical preventative services (CPSs). As the authors state, these services rendered throughout the stages of a child's life, could ultimately lead to improved outcomes. Unfortunately, millions of children may not be benefiting from these services.

To find out what the data revealed about obstacles faced in the delivery of CPSs, read the full article (JAMA login required).

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) gathered baseline data and reported on a specific set of CPSs for children. The findings and suggestions will serve as a benchmark to measure the future effectiveness of the Affordable Care Act implementation.
