Defining an Accountable Community for Health for Children and Families

Nemours Children’s Health System, Center for Health Care Strategies


Health happens wherever families are—at home, in schools, in child care, in medical homes, and digitally at any location in the community. Building upon a variety of community-based models funded by the federal government, states, and private funders, as well as the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Accountable Health Communities Model, this paper adapts these models of integrated care to seamlessly address the medical, social, and developmental needs of children and families, with a focus on shared accountability across sectors as well as financial sustainability.
