  11. 11. What Constitutes CC in a Pediatric Medical Home?
  12. 13. National Study of Care Coordination Measurement in Medical Homes Antonelli, Stille, and Antonelli, 2008
  13. 15. <ul><li>Health Outreach for Medical Equality (HOME) </li></ul><ul><li>Pilot Project to Assess Feasibility and Outcomes of Co-Located CC model in an urban pediatric setting </li></ul><ul><li>CC provided by Community-based partner (Hispanic Health Council) with clinic and community-based CC </li></ul><ul><li>Funded by Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, Children’s Fund of CT/ Child Health and Development Institute, Conn Children’s Medical Center, and CT Medicaid agency </li></ul>
  14. 16. Implications for Policy and Practice <ul><li>With the advent of Patient-Centered Medical Home, all primary care provider organizations are focusing on CC as critical function </li></ul><ul><li>Payers and purchasers are looking at P4P to incentivize CC </li></ul><ul><li>CC for adult chronic condition CC is very different from pediatric CC </li></ul>
  15. 17. Implications for Policy and Practice <ul><li>Pediatric disease-specific CC (aka, chronic condition management/ CCM) should be quite implementable </li></ul><ul><li>However, comprehensive pediatric CC is not the same as CCM </li></ul><ul><li>Mechanisms of operationalizing and measuring CC functionality at MH practice level must be developed </li></ul><ul><li>CC as a discipline must be developed in order to achieve high performing health care system </li></ul>
  16. 18. Transition for Youth You think pediatrics or adult CC is difficult, what about Transitioning youth with chronic conditions from one side of the chasm to the other?
  17. 19. Outcome Realities YSHCN <ul><li>90% of YSHCN reach their 21 st birthday </li></ul><ul><li>Nearly 40% cannot identify a primary care physician </li></ul><ul><li>20% consider their pediatric specialist to be their ‘regular’ physician </li></ul><ul><li>Significant numbers have extensive primary health concerns that are not being met </li></ul><ul><li>Fewer work opportunities, lower high school grad rates and high drop out from college </li></ul>CHOICES Survey, 1997; NOD/Harris Poll, 2000; KY TEACH, 2002
