Meet the SERVE team, including the core staff and Senior Policy Council.


New England SERVE is an independent health policy research and consulting organization, with a focus on children with special health care needs.

Systems for delivering and financing care are often fragmented and complex. To improve these systems, New England SERVE promotes:

  • Family-Centered Care
  • Responsible Health Care Financing
  • Consumer Roles in Health Policy-Making
  • Care Coordination
  • Medical Home Partnerships

Established in 1983, New England SERVE has maintained a primary focus on creating collaboration among professionals in all types of health care settings and the families they serve.

New England SERVE furthered this commitment in 1999 by establishing the Massachusetts Consortium for Children with Special Health Care Needs, and again in 2006 with the demonstration and documentation of the Family-Professional Partners Institute.
