ABSTRACT

A social worker coordinated medical care for children in foster care in a foster care medical home (FCMH) and tracked care coordination (CC) activities using a modified Care Coordination Measurement Tool© (mCCMT). Of the 60 subjects, most were younger than 5 years, and 60% had a behavioral and/or medical condition. Primary CC activities included behavioral support for families and health system navigation. The CC prevented 11 emergency department (ED) visits, 9 placement disruptions, and 42 patient privacy violations. Children assigned to a FCMH have diverse CC needs and benefit from social workers’ specialized skills.
