Establishing Medical Homes for all Children
August 26, 2009
A fundamental component of the Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) initiative is to increase access to medical homes for all children. Medical homes provide medical care that is accessible, family centered, continuous, comprehensive, coordinated, compassionate, and delivered in a culturally competent environment. States are in various stages of defining and implementing medical homes and will need to create incentives, supports, and regulations to sustain this work. This webinar features some of the current national and state initiatives to improve access to medical homes for all children.
