Family Driven Care Management Services
“Health Homes” for Children – A service provided by The Rehabilitation Center
A Health Home is a care management service model whereby all of an individual’s caregivers communicate with one another so that all of a patient’s needs are addressed in a comprehensive manner.
This is done primarily through a “care manager” who oversees and provides access to all of the services an individual needs to assure that they receive everything necessary to stay healthy, out of the emergency room and out of the hospital. Health records are shared confidentially among providers so that services are not duplicated or neglected. Health Home services are provided through a network of organizations – providers, health plans and community-based organizations. When all the services are considered collectively they become a virtual “Health Home.”
Who is Eligible to be in a Children’s Health Home?

Key Point of Contact
We understand families spend countless hours on the phone being transferred from department to department trying to get critical answers and information regarding your child’s services. When you enroll in a Health Home, your Care Manager becomes your key point of contact in managing the services for your child.
Critical to a healthy child is ensuring each service provider works together and always in the best interest of the child. A family’s Care Manager will have access to information on each service their child is receiving, enabling them to stay in constant communication and eliminating redundancy of service. The vast network also provides linkages to related services such as Adult Health Homes and many more.
Our Care Manager is an independent position that works for you. Following the CHHUNY model of care, this position strives to learn about the unique needs of each family and work with them to make the most appropriate decisions for the family.
