The National Network for Advancing Systems of Services for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs
About the Network
Collaborating with the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, our goal is to improve the health and well-being of children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) and their families by establishing a network of centers that focus on three core health system components: access to the patient/family-centered medical home, transition into adult health care systems, and adoption of health care financing models that improve care and outcomes while achieving cost savings, the focus of the Catalyst Center. As the Network, the Catalyst Center, the National Resource Center for Patient/Family-Centered Medical Home (NRC-PFCMH), and Got Transition collaborate to support state Title V programs, family leadership organizations, health care providers, and other stakeholders. In addition to the activities of the Network, each national center continues to provide its own technical assistance and training on topics specific to its area of expertise. The Network strives to provide a “no wrong door” approach to meeting the technical assistance needs of our stakeholders.
