Too many California children are failing to get the well-coordinated mix of health care services that they need to thrive. This represents a huge area of opportunity to improve outcomes for kids and the state as a whole, given healthy children and families are more productive. Fortunately, a new twist on an old idea is poised to provide the better, more holistic care for kids and their families that’s needed: health homes. A health home is a team-based model for delivering a comprehensive range of health care services in a personalized and coordinated manner, including medical, dental, and mental health, and support services.
