Category C of the CHIPRA project, or CHIPRA Connect, evaluates new provider-based models to improve the delivery of care to Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN).

CHIPRA Connect was launched in March 2011 to assist participating practices within Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC) networks to implement a medical home for Children & Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) with a focus on social-emotional, developmental, and behavioral health. Eleven practices in four CCNC networks participated in 2011. Joined in 2012 by two additional practices, this first cohort continues its work. Practices that will comprise a second cohort are being selected and will be announced in January 2012.

The NC Center of Excellence for Integrated Care and NC Community Care Networks provide support and integrated care technical assistance to the participating networks and practices to implement and test these provider-base models to establish a comprehensive medical home for children and youth with special health care needs.
