Workbook Contents This workbook includes the tools and supports needed for a primary care practice to develop their capacity to offer a pediatric care coordination service; particularly for children with special health care needs. The health care team, determined to develop such an explicit service, makes an assessment of current care coordination practice and frames their improvement efforts to achieve proactive comprehensive practice-based care coordination. Tools included in this resource are: a definition of care coordination in the medical home, a care coordination position description, a framework for care coordination services including structures and processes, strategies for the protection of devoted staff time, and a logical sequence of care coordination improvement ideas offered in the context of the Model for Improvement (Langley, 1996). Each tool can be used as is or it can be customized in a manner which best fits your practice environment and the strategic plans your organization holds for medical home improvement activities.
