The information you provide in the NJ InCK HealthStory helps to:
Ensure families are well so children can thrive
That’s why the NJ InCK HealthStory asks about your family’s basic needs, parent/guardian health, and family relationships.
Get care faster
Finding out about any challenges or difficulties that may be affecting your child’s health or wellbeing and getting help as early as possible keeps children healthier.
Stay on top of changing health needs
As a child grows from an infant to a toddler, and from a school-aged child to a teen and young adult, their health and social needs change. Regular physical, mental, and behavioral health screening helps you and your doctor make sure your child’s current needs are met.
Create a circle of care
Your child’s health is shaped by many things, such as having enough food to eat, safe and stable places to live, learn and play, support for their physical and mental health, and even making sure those who take care of them are healthy too. That’s why the NJ InCK circle of care includes families, doctors, and community centers, schools, faith-based organizations, social services programs and others. NJ InCK helps you make sure everyone in your circle of care has the information they need to support your child’s health and wellbeing in the best way possible.
