New, improved State-at-a-Glance Chartbook: fast facts on coverage for CYSHCN
The Catalyst Center has enhanced and updated its web-based state data chartbook on coverage and financing of care for children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) for each state, DC, and Puerto Rico.
In the chartbook, you will continue to find the demographic, economic, health care services, and coverage information related to CYSHCN that you have grown to rely on.
Data from many sources, combined to tell one story
The Catalyst Center chartbook combines data from more than 15 respected sources including:
National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs
National Survey of Children's Health, the U.S. Census Bureau
U.S. Department of Education
Kaiser Family Foundation
American Board of Medical Specialties
and more. Our goal is to provide you with the data you need to make the case for improving coverage and financing of care for CYSHCN.
But wait, there's more...
What percentage of families of CYSHCN in your state are satisfied with the health care services their child receives? What percentage of CYSHCN are screened early and continuously for special health care needs, and how does that compare with the national average? In addition to updated existing data, the chartbook now includes several new indicators, most notably a section on state performance toward the achievement of the six core Healthy People 2010 performance outcomes for CYSHCN. (The Catalyst Center History page lists these performance outcomes.)
What's in it for you?
As always, you can look up and compare data from two states and the nation in a single, printable table. You can also display detailed source information and tips for interpreting specific data.
Our goal at the Catalyst Center is to support your efforts to improve coverage and financing of care for CYSHCN. The online state-at-a-glance chartbook is an important tool to help you make the case for CYSHCN in your state.
