This fact sheet explores results of the 2009/2010 National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs (NS-CSHCN) and compares and contrasts the Maternal and Child Health Bureau’s six outcomes for South Dakota and the nation. It begins with background information on the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, the Maternal and Child Health Services Black Grant, and the six core outcomes that describe what families should expect for the service system. The six care areas are: partnering with families in shared decision-making for child’s optimal health; coordinated, ongoing, comprehensive care within a medical home; consistent and adequate public or private insurance; early and continuously screening for special health care needs; easy access to community based services; and receive services for transition to adulthood. Results of the survey are then presented and indicate there are an estimated 24,415 children with special health care needs in South Dakota. On the outcomes, South Dakota has a lower percentage of children with special health care needs receiving services that meet outcomes relating to partners in decision-making, a medical home, and early and continuous screening, and a higher percentage of children receiving services that meet the outcomes relating to adequate health insurance and transition to adulthood. 8 references.
