This article provides an overview of the chronic care model (CCM), examines the evidence for its utility in pediatric and adolescent chronic illness, and discusses practical steps for improving chronic illness care in the pediatric medical home. Recent findings: Few studies have used the CCM as an improvement framework in pediatrics. However, in recent years, several quality improvement efforts based on the CCM have demonstrated improvement in important process measures or clinical outcomes in pediatric or adolescent obesity, inflammatory bowel disease, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, depression, and asthma.
