Center for Care Coordination
The Connecticut Children’s Center for Care Coordination empowers families to advocate for their children, provides care coordination services, and connects families to appropriate medical, behavioral, educational, legal and social services.
Care coordination is a team-based approach designed to meet the needs of children while also strengthening the caregiving capabilities of families through the Protective Factors Framework. Care coordination addresses the medical, social, developmental, behavioral, educational and financial needs of families to achieve optimal healthy development for children.
The Center covers the North-Central region of Connecticut.
Services for Families
The Center for Care Coordination strives to facilitate comprehensive care to meet the medical and social needs of children and their families. Our care coordinators are available to help bridge the gap between families and services.
Services through the Center for Care Coordination are complimentary for children and youth birth to 21 years of age, including those with medical, developmental or behavioral conditions and those needing help with basic needs. Our services include:
- Needs assessment
- Care coordination
- Communication between care providers
- Transitional planning (medical, educational, vocational, community)
- Support to parents and providers
- Benefit coordination
- Medical home implementation
Services for Community-Based Primary Care Providers
The Center for Care Coordination also trains and provides technical support to community-based primary care partners to enhance their care coordination capacity.
The Center is proud to be the home of several innovations including the Care Coordination Collaborative Model. The Model brings together care coordinators from various child-serving sectors to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of care coordination within a comprehensive child health system, decrease the duplication of services and unnecessary visits, and to advocate for policy level solutions to ensure families have access to beneficial services.
