[Editorial] Transition health care for adolescents

The American Academy of Paediatrics, the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the American College of Physicians have updated their collective 2011 clinical guidance in a new report, Supporting the Health Care Transition from Adolescence to Adulthood in the Medical Home. According to new data, a health-care transition plan is in place for only 17% of American adolescents who have special health-care needs and for only 14% of adolescents who do not have special needs.
