Health insurance is important for children. Public insurance programs are available to many children, but some families report being confused about how to get and keep this insurance. Community Health Centers (CHCs) can help families get and keep health insurance for their children.
The investigators will work with families, policy makers, and community health care providers and staff to develop and test new computer health information technology (IT) tools to help health care clinics find pediatric patients in need of insurance and communicate with their families about public insurance programs. These tools will be based on technologies currently used to help patients and clinics manage chronic diseases. The investigators will test the tools by comparing four clinics using the tools and four clinics not using the tools. The investigators will look to see if children in the clinics using the tools are more likely to have health insurance and also more likely to receive certain health care services, compared to children in the clinics without such tools. The investigators will also look at health insurance rates and health care services for a larger population of Oregon children.
