      • Implementing Medical Homes for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) within Medicaid Managed Care
        Developed by the National Resource Center for Patient/Family-Centered Medical Home (NRC-PFCMH), in partnership with the National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP), this fact sheet highlights how promotion of medical homes for CYSHCN within Medicaid managed care delivery systems can be an effective strategy to support the delivery of health care services which meet medical home model standards. Case studies outline strategies for collaboration among Medicaid, Title V Maternal and Child Health/CYSHCN programs, and pediatricians to increase the number of CYSHCN receiving care through the medical home model.
      • Educational Webinar Seri​es
        The NRC-PFCMH, in partnership with Bright Futures National Center and the Screening Technical Assistance and Resource (STAR) Center, implemented an educational webinar series titled Making Connections: The Critical Role of Family-Centered Care in Addressing Social Determinants of Health for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN). The goal of this 2-part webinar series was to provide state Title V Maternal and Child Health (MCH)/CYSHCN programs, pediatricians, families, and others with information about the impact of social determinants of health (SDoH) on CYSHCN and their families as well as implementation strategies for state programs. The series discussed the role of these groups and state systems in addressing SDoH for CYSHCN by using components of the medical home model. The first webinar in this series provided relevant background information about how CYSHCN are impacted by SDoH, including a review of current data. The second webinar featured two state Title V MCH/CYSHCN programs that discussed how their states are addressing SDoH for CYSHCN.
