Developed by the National Resource Center for Patient/Family-Centered Medical Home, the customizable Essential Data for Pediatricians on National Performance Measure 11 (Medical Home) template is a tool to share state-level data on medical home for children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) and their families from the National Survey for Children's Health with pediatricians. This template provides opportunities for state level agencies, such as state Title V Maternal and Child Health (MCH)/CYSHCN programs and state American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) chapters, to share:
- The number of CYSHCN receiving care through a medical home compared to the national average
- Why the NSCH matters to pediatricians
- How the data impacts state-level programs, initiatives, and policies for CYSHCN and their families
- Who to contact in the state's CYCHSN program for more resources to support CYSHCN and their families through family-centered care
