The Children’s Institute Launches Care Coordination Program

Updated on May 17, 2014

The Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh’s Care Coordination Program for Children with Medical Complexity will launch this June. The Care Coordination Program is a new service in which a team of health care professionals from The Children’s Institute works with families to ensure that their children with medical complexity receive the services they need, when they need them. Outcomes are expected to include better health, better healthcare, and lower healthcare costs.

Care Coordination will be available to Western Pennsylvania children and young people with medical complexity, which may include – acquired brain injury, congenital heart disease, cancer, spinal cord injury or multiple major diagnoses. Children with medical complexity often have multiple physician specialty visits, therapies and other providers visits in a given year. The coordination of their services can be extremely challenging for families.  For more information about this new program, please call 412.420.2599.
