Amy Perry, Director of Case Management, highlights Heathy Tomorrows in action at Providence Community Health Centers (PCHC).
Why did your practice first engage in the family home visiting program?
PCHC was looking to see how we could better collaborate on our shared patients to enhance care to the pediatric patients.
What unique challenges did this program help your practice and its families overcome, and what success was found?
It helped set up direct contacts for collaborations. We found success in routine case conferences and ad hoc follow-up for more urgent needs.
What lessons learned from this work can you share with other practices that can help better support Rhode Islanders?
Establishing a relationship with individuals at each agency/practice will enhance the care provided to our patients.
