Report finds fault with U.S. health services for teens

HealthDay/Washington Post, December 10, 2008
Better coordination and care, along with improved training for healthcare providers, are among the reforms needed to improve the fragmented and poorly designed health services currently available for American teens. Researchers with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health said that some teens, particularly those who are uninsured or underinsured, have little or no access to mainstream primary care services. Instead, they rely largely on "safety-net" care provided by hospitals, community centers and school-based health centers.
