Care Coordination for Children (CC4C)
Care Coordination for Children (CC4C) is an at-risk population management program that serves children from birth to 5 years of age who meet certain risk criteria. The main goals of the program are to improve health outcomes and reduce costs for enrolled children. Each child served by CC4C is linked to a specific Medical Home and CC4C Care Manager. The Care Manager works closely with the local medical practice serving as the child's Medical Home to coordinate roles and responsibilities and ensure the child obtains necessary care. Contacts may occur in multiple settings including the health care provider office, community, or patient's home, as well as by phone. CC4C services will continue until the identified need(s) is met, or until progress in meeting the need is no longer being made.
