Report Focuses on Need for Child-Centered Health Homes in California

A new report published by the nonprofit organization Children Now emphasizes that the health home model has the potential to provide better, more effective care to children and families in California. But, according to the report, the state’s policy makers haven’t taken full advantage of existing statewide infrastructure and opportunities in federal health care reform to expand access to health homes for vulnerable children. Available for download, the report maintains that using the health home’s team-based approach to health care delivery could be especially beneficial to children with complex health care needs and those in foster care.
