Developing an Approach for Measuring and Monitoring Care Coordination for Vulnerable Children


Having well-coordinated health care is particularly important for patients with multifaceted needs, such as children who have developmental problems. Building on previous Commonwealth Fund–sponsored work on care coordination, the project team will develop an approach to measuring the structure, processes, and outcomes of care coordination for vulnerable children, emphasizing coordination between medical and nonmedical service providers. The researchers will conduct their activities in collaboration with the Fund’s current Assuring Better Child Health and Development (ABCD) initiative, which works with state Medicaid programs. It is expected that the new approach will also be applicable to other vulnerable patient populations in need of high-quality care coordination.
