  • Health Care Transition Overview Every year 500,000+ American youth with special health care needs leave the pediatric health care system and graduate into the adult system Some are able to independently negotiate their way into and around the adult health care system But many need different levels of support as they navigate the chasm between pediatric and adult health care
  • Slide 6
  • Level 1 (Basic)Level 2 (Responsive) (Includes Level 1) Level 3 (Proactive) (Levels 1 & 2) Level 4 (Comprehensive) (Includes Levels 1, 2, 3) Transition support and services vary among practice providers; staff members are informally aware of these supports and services; families/youth are informed of their individual clinicians approach to transition as the youths needs arise. There is a uniform, but not necessarily written, transition and transfer of care policy that is agreed upon by all providers and is made clear to staff; families/youth are informed of the office transition policy by age 18 and/or in response to inquiries prior to age 18. A written transition and transfer of care policy addresses age of transition to adult model of care and (if necessary) age range for transfer to adult health care settings; the policy and its rationale are communicated to families/youth by age 12 during encounters and through brochures, posters, and website content In addition to Level 3, the written health care transition and transfer of care policy addresses preparation, planning, process for transition to an adult model of care and (if needed) transfer to adult health care settings. By age 18, guardianship, decision- making, and information access rights are determined and clearly identified in the medical record. Practice services include transition encounters, care coordination, & monitoring of steps/progress. Transition Index: 1. Office health care transition policy: Level Partial or Complete
