There is no smarter investment than an investment in a young child: decades of research demonstrate the tremendous short- and long-term benefits and cost savings achieved by effective early childhood programs. HealthySteps is an interdisciplinary primary care program that serves young children and their families in pediatric and family practice settings, with proven results. By partnering with providers to bring the HealthySteps program to their members, Medicaid health plans can achieve the triple aim of better care, better health, and lower costs. Watch this brief video story about HealthySteps and then join us to learn why a growing number of states across the country are implementing HealthySteps to attain their population health goals. 

The mission of HealthySteps is to transform pediatric practice to improve the health, well-being, and school readiness of babies and young children in low-income families. HealthySteps is headquartered at ZERO TO THREE, which is the leading non-profit organization working to ensure that babies and toddlers benefit from the early connections that are critical to their well-being and development.
