Annual Report

Participating Hospitals: Submit your annual report by February 4, 2014

About the CHGME Annual Report

The Annual Report is required by the Children’s Hospital GME Support Reauthorization Act of 2006 (Public Law 109-307), which extends authorization for the program through 2011 and requires that participating hospitals report annually, as an addendum to their annual application for CHGME Payment Program funding, the following data:

  1. Types of residency training programs, such as general pediatrics, internal medicine/pediatrics, and pediatric subspecialties including both certified medical and non-medical subspecialties;
  2. Number of training positions for residents, as well as the number recruited for and filled; the number of such positions recruited to fill, and the number of positions filled;
  3. Types of training provided for residents related to the health care needs of different populations, such as children underserved for reasons of family income or geographic location;
  4. Changes in residency training and resultant benefits, including changes in curricula, training experiences, and types of training programs and changes for the purpose of training residents in the measurement, improvement, quality and safety of patient care; and
  5. Numbers of residents (disaggregated by specialty and subspecialty) who completed training in the academic year and care for children within the borders of the service area of the hospital or within the borders of the State in which the hospital is located.

The CHGME Payment Program is fully aware of the additional time and effort associated with this statutory requirement and has made every effort to minimize the burden placed on participating hospitals while complying with the requirement.
