Appendix C—
Acknowledgments

The Board on Children, Youth, and Families and the Board on Health Promotion and Disease Prevention thank the many institutions and individuals who gave support to and contributions to the reports that comprise this volume.

Major support for the workshops that are summarized in the report ''Including Children and Pregnant Women in Health Care Reform'' was provided by the Lucile and David Packard Foundation through its Center for the Future of Children. Additional support was provided by the March of Dimes Birth Defects Foundation, particularly for the printing and distribution of the report. The workshop participants were helped enormously by the advice and technical support of Sara Rosenbaum (George Washington University), who served as a consultant to the project. Special thanks also go to the individuals who talked with the workshop participants about specific proposals for reforming the health care system: David Abernathy (Subcommittee on Health, U.S. House of Representatives), Antoinette Parisi Eaton and Samuel Flint (American Academy of Pediatrics), Chris Peterson (Health Insurance Association of America), Andreas Schneider (Subcommittee on Health and the Environment, U.S. House of Representatives), Steven Seekins and Arthur Elster (American Medical Association), Maureen Testoni (Office of Congressman Marty Russo), and Christine Williams and Lou Diamond (Office of Senator George Mitchell). Gail Wilensky (Health Care Financing Administration) and David Nexon (Committee on Labor and Human Resources, U.S. House of Representatives) were also very helpful in talking with the workshop participants about health care reform generally. The commitment of all these individuals to improving care for children and pregnant

women is deep and well informed, and the workshop participants learned a great deal from each of them.

Funding for the workshops that produced the reports "Benefits and Systems of Care for Maternal and Child Health Under Health Care Reform" and "Protecting and Improving Quality of Care for Children Under Health Care Reform" was provided by the March of Dimes Birth Defects Foundation, the National Foundation for Public Health Policy, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services through the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (Cooperative Agreement Number ASU-000002-01) and the Maternal and Child Health Bureau. The following individuals were particularly helpful to the staff in formulating the workshop agenda and identifying possible speakers: Donald Berwick, Institute for Health Care Improvement; Amy Fine, Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs; Neal Halfon, UCLA School of Public Health; Kay Johnson, March of Dimes Birth Defects Foundation; Woodie Kessel, Maternal and Child Health Bureau; Jonathan Kotch, National Foundation for Public Health Policy; Kristen Langlykke and Pamela Mangu, National Center for Education in Maternal and Child Health; Sara Rosenbaum and Elizabeth Wehr, the George Washington University Center for Health Policy Research; and Lisa Simpson and Robert Valdez, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health. Numerous staff members in addition to those listed with the workshop steering committee contributed to the success of the workshop and the preparation of this report: Brenda Buchbinder, Claudia Carl, Nancy Crowell, Molla Donaldson, Judith Doody, Michael Edington, Marilyn Field, Eugenia Grohman, Carrie Ingalls, Amanda Klekowski, Kathleen Lohr, Philomina Mammen, Alison Smith, and Mary Thomas. For both the workshop and this report, Kathleen Lohr, then director of IOM's Division of Health Care Services, provided particularly valuable advice on quality of care issues.

Funding for the workshop highlighted in the report "Strategies for Assuring the Provision of Quality Services Through Managed Care Delivery Systems to Children with Special Health Care Needs" was provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services through the Maternal and Child Health Bureau.

The views presented in the four reports reprinted in this volume are those of the workshop participants and are not necessarily those of the funding organizations.

America's health care system is being reshaped by a variety of market-driven changes, and states are emerging as the major governmental influence on health care policy.

Amid these changes, the health and well-being of children can slip from view. Although most children are fundamentally healthy, they require health care that emphasizes preventive services, such as immunizations and regular monitoring of physical and psychosocial growth and development.

This volume takes a broad look at access and quality of care for pregnant women, children, and mothers. Among the issues addressed are the scope of benefits available under various health care reform efforts and services for special-needs children under managed care.
