Improving Care for Children with Complex Medical Needs

  • G11 Dirksen Senate Office Building (map)

During this briefing, panelists will describe factors that impact the quality, affordability, and accessibility of care for children with complex medical needs. Light breakfast will be served at 9:00 a.m. RSVP

Advancements in medicine are allowing children with complex medical needs to live longer. Today, there are approximately 3 million children living with medically complex conditions in the United States–many of whom are covered by Medicaid. These children often require intensive services from multiple providers in a range of clinical and non-clinical settings. The volume of care required to support this population poses a unique set of challenges to the health care providers, payers, and family members who care for them. During this briefing, panelists will describe factors that impact the quality, affordability, and accessibility of care for children with complex medical needs.

 

The Alliance would like to thank the Children’s Hospital Association for making this event possible.
