  • 7. Implications: Learning from doing
    • Really connecting systems is > connecting data, = people communicating
    • Being patient centered means doing the reality check of parent and families- cafés provide that forum
    • We are rebuilding our health care delivery system, first for Medicaid, then for public employees. The cafés help us understand the experience of getting care, what are parents’ expectations from a community perspective, and they do vary
    • We are building into the redesigned organizations a primary emphasis on care coordination (e.g., Operationalizing CPT codes 99366-99368)
    • We are rethinking early education as well
