Building a system of care for children with complex medical and social needs
Children with medical complexities require specialized services and care delivery models across the healthcare continuum – from inpatient, outpatient, transitional, respite, home care, and community support services to physicians, nurses, and other providers with the expertise to care for these children. The care system for this population of children is extensive and fragmented, and seldom possesses all aspects of the infrastructure needed to support medically complex children and their families.
In this webinar, Debbie Grisko and Denise Nora of Almost Home Kids described their unique care delivery model where they provide transitional and respite care for children with medical complexities, serving as a crucial bridge from hospital to home. They also shared outcomes, including improved well-being of children and their families, financial benefits for hospitals and Medicaid, and addressing gaps in their community’s system of care.
