What is Care Coordination?
Care coordination is the process that links children and their families with needed health care and services, along with other supports and services. A child and family’s needs, goals, and choices are included in a care plan that is shared with all team members.
-Based on Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health and the Catalyst Center's paper "The Care Coordination Conundrum"
