This toolkit provides knowledge and skills to map a child health system. It provides an approach to mapping (i.e., drawing) the child health system in a state so state leaders can better envision the flow of services and funding that support access to care for children and families and identify opportunities for improvement. It contains system diagrams and discussion questions on the following topics: the Title V agency role in ensuring child health; Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment Program (EPSDT) mandates on collaboration and outreach to families; medical and dental homes; EPSDT screening visits; linkages, case management, and care coordination; care for children with special health care needs; Medicaid managed care; and public-private and interagency collaboration. Sample scenarios are provided to guide discussion, and tips on designing and facilitating a state leadership workshop are included.
