Care Coordination: Improving Children's Access to Health Services
Care coordination connects children to medical and community services that can address their health and developmental needs. It is especially important that children receive timely intervention when needs are identified, as they receive the greatest benefits from interventions and services when they are provided at the earliest possible time. This report reviews the findings from a three-year demonstration project that used community-based care coordinators to link children identified by their primary care health care providers as needing services to those services.
