Although children with special health care needs (CSHCN) fare better when they are cared for in a "medical home," only a small percentage receive such care. A survey queried California board-certified pediatricians about their experience in caring for CSHCN and their thoughts on system changes that could enhance their willingness to provide a medical home.
