What is Care Coordination?
 
"Care Coordination is a process that links children with special health care needs and their families to services and resources in a coordinated effort to maximize the potential of the children and provide them with optimal health care. Children with special health care needs (CSHCN) require access to treatment and special services which take into account their overall growth and development."
