The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2019 for the Transforming Health Care for Children and Youth with Epilepsy (CYE) Program. The purpose of this program is to increase access to coordinated, quality health care in a patient/family-centered medical home for CYE residing in rural and/or medically under-served areas. This will be accomplished by supporting quality improvement (QI) networks to address four content areas:
(1) increasing access to specialists through telehealth and telemedicine strategies;
(2) increasing family engagement at various levels across the health care system;
(3) improving the transition from pediatric to adult health care; and
(4) increasing communication, collaboration, and co-management between primary care providers and epilepsy specialty providers.
