Implementation

As a Strategy to Address National Peformance Measures (NPM) 11: Medical Home
As a part of an overall strategy to improve care coordination for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) across the state, the New Mexico Title V program is working with the New Mexico Quality Improvement Partnership (NMQIP). Currently, NMQIP is initiating improvement activities focused on coordination of health care and social services for children in New Mexico who have disabilities and chronic medical conditions. Initiatives for this multiyear project include: 1) Improving the coordination of care across service providers for CYSHCN in partnership with the medical home and 2) Improving the transition of youth with special health care needs from pediatric to adult care in accordance with the National Training Center “Got Transition” evidenced-based practices. One of the initial activities for this project, which will serve as a foundation to inform activities throughout, is to create a plan to increase the percentage of patients and families receiving care consistent with the Bright Futures Guidelines, 4th Edition for evidence-driven approaches to care coordination and to provide input to inform the state plan for coordinated services for CYSHCN in the medical home. The project includes the development of a care coordination consortium whose membership is broadly based with entities in the State that provide care coordination for CYSHCN. The goal is to encourage best practices and share resources.​
