Parent Advocacy Network (SPAN), New Jersey's Family to Family Health Information
Center, the New Jersey Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the New Jersey Title V program (administered out of the New Jersey Department of Health), partnered to support six regional medical home learning collaboratives. The collaboratives utilized a
quality improvement methodology to facilitate practice transformation, build
capacity among diverse family leaders, and strengthen systems of care for
children and youth with special health care needs. Thirty diverse practices participated in this initiative, including Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), private practices, and children's
hospitals. The initiative was support by three State Implementation Grants from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau of the Health Resources and Services Administration.
