Shared Plan of Care: A Tool to Support Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs and Their Families

​For children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) requiring multiple services and supports, the use of a shared plan of care facilitates implementation of key functions of the medical home model, including, but not limited to, comprehensive care coordination, communication, and patient- and family-centered care.

The National Center for Medical Home Implementation, in collaboration with the National Academy for State Health Policy, created a fact sheet which discusses key components of a shared plan of care, the role of families in creating and maintaining a shared plan of care, and strategies state agencies can utilize to support implementation of a shared plan of care.
