Care coordination is a focal point of health care delivery reform initiatives across the country, yet there has been limited progress in measuring it, particularly for children and between primary medical care and community service providers. How can states and providers begin to measure this crucial element of care? Join speakers from CMS, NASHP, and two states (Oklahoma and Minnesota) that participated in the Assuring Better Child Health and Development (ABCD) III Initiative for a national webcast to address this question. Speakers will set the national context for pediatric care coordination measurement, highlighting relevant CMS activity, and share care coordination measurement strategies, results, and lessons learned from ABCD III. Although ABCD III focused on improving care coordination for children ages birth to three, the information shared will be relevant for measuring care coordination among other populations.
