Advancing Care Coordination Project

2018 Advancing Family-Centered Care Coordination for CYSHCN Project

The Medical Home Initiative of Children's Health Alliance of Wisconsin is supporting implementation of quality improvement grants designed to support work with Wisconsin pediatric primary care teams to advance medical home care provision for children and youth with special health care needs through the use of a Shared Plan of Care.

A Shared Plan of Care is a living document completed by parents and health care providers that includes information necessary to assure issues affecting a child's health are identified and accessible across systems, and that activities and accountability for addressing those activities are documented. Key components include:

  • Medical summary
  • Family strengths and preferences
  • Negotiated plan of action (including clinical and family goals, actions to address goals, responsible partners, and timelines)
  • Other necessary attachments (such as emergency plans, chronic condition protocols, and relevant legal documents such as IEPs or 504 plans)
