Research suggests that less than half of young adults with special health care needs are prepared for the transition to an adult primary care provider at the age-appropriate time (McManus et al., 2013). Prior research also indicates that having a “usual source of care” and routinized medical services creates a higher likelihood of adult patients receiving preventative and screening health services (Blewett et al., 2008).
