Technical Workgroups

The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), in its continued efforts to improve health care and to emphasize quality and coordination of care for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN), initiated a comprehensive stakeholder process in late 2014 to investigate potential improvements of the California Children’s Services (CCS) Program. A CCS Redesign Stakeholder Advisory Board (RSAB) composed of individuals from various organizations and backgrounds with expertise in both the CCS program and care for CYSHCN, was assembled to lead this process. In addition, a series of topic-specific technical workgroups were conducted. These workgroups were comprised of experts in issues identified by stakeholders as being of greatest importance to CYSHCN and the CCS program. The CCS RSAB process culminated in July 2015. After July, DHCS will continue stakeholder discussions on CCS program improvements, transitioning the RSAB group to an ongoing CCS Advisory Group that will meet quarterly in Sacramento along with restructured Technical Workgroups.
