About the Care Coordination for Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) Challenge
The Care Coordination for CSHCN Challenge will award $375,000 in prizes to support the creation of tech innovations to help families and case managers with the care and coordination of children with special health care needs.
One in five U.S. families has a child with one or more special health care needs. Children and youth with special health care needs and their families often require services from multiple systems, including health care, public health, education, mental health, and social services.
More information about the Challenge can be found in the Federal Register Notice.
What is the goal of the Care Coordination for CSHCN Challenge?
This Challenge will support the development and testing of low-cost, scalable tech innovations to meet the information needs of families of CSHCN, particularly those with complex medical conditions, and case managers. These innovations should improve the quality of care and enhance patient and family engagement and health care quality while saving costs to families and the health care system.
