This webinar focused on the integral relationship of two of the core components of the Help Me Grow Model – the centralized access point and child health provider outreach. Telephone and web-based services have proven to be effective primary points of access to community resources. Child health care providers are in a unique position to identify and support developmentally vulnerable children and their families; however, they face challenges in keeping comprehensive and updated information on community-facing services and meeting the needs of their patients that reach beyond health. Three experts – Patricia Herrera, MS; Bergen Nelson MD, MS; and Paul Chung MD, MS – discuss the results of a study on the effectiveness of centralized, telephone-based developmental screening and care coordination.
