This brief applies health complexity, a concept that considers both a child’s medical and social complexity, to address health disparities. It includes recommendations on how state agencies and health systems can develop and use health complexity data to ensure the most vulnerable children are at the center of health system redesign. Authors provide four options for systems-change and examples of success and implementation from the field.
