This policy brief from Children Now describes how child- and family-centered health homes can improve the health of California’s children.  While patient-centered health homes can improve health for all populations, children can particularly benefit because of the impact of early childhood development on lifelong health (and health costs), the dependence of children on their families and caregivers, and the complexity of certain childhood diseases and conditions that require care coordination.  The policy brief highlights how children with special health care needs and children in foster care can particularly benefit from health homes.
