Connecticut Children’s Medical Center’s main campus is located at 282 Washington Street in Hartford, Connecticut.

What We Do

The Care Coordination Collaborative model brings together the care coordinators from a variety of child-serving sectors with regularly scheduled meetings to do the following:

  • Learn, through presentations from area/state resource providers, about services for children and how to help families access them
  • Collectively review challenging cases and develop cross-sector solutions to meeting children’s and families’ needs
  • Develop and advocate for policy-level solutions to families’ struggles in connecting to services
  • Support pediatric primary care in meeting the care coordination needs of families

As the Care Coordination Collaborative learns more about the work of member agencies and the challenges they confront in supporting families, suggestions and recommendations for improving care coordination will arise. A State Level Collaborative was convened to provide a venue for regional collaboratives to elevate systems’ issues and gaps, with the intention of developing potential policies to address these issues.
