Care Coordinators in Medical Homes

The ninth Evaluation Highlight from the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) Quality Demonstration Grant Program is now available on the national evaluation Web site.

This highlight focuses on how six States—Alaska, Idaho, Massachusetts, Oregon, Utah, and West Virginia—are using grant funds to support the use of care coordinators as practices implement patient-centered medical home models. These experiences may be helpful to other States that are seeking to use care coordinators as an integral part of their strategy for achieving the functions of care coordination in primary care practices serving children and adolescents. AHRQ is leading the national evaluation of the CHIPRA Quality Demonstration Grant Program. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services funds the evaluation. If you have questions or comments, please contact the national evaluation team via Email (CHIPRADemoEval@ahrq.hhs.gov).
