Pediatric Practice of the Future

“The greatest predictor of a child’s health should not be his or her zip code.”

Pediatric Practice of the Future

Pediatric care represents a tremendous opportunity to improve children’s health and well-being—infants come to primary care 6 times in the first year of life alone, and pediatric providers develop longitudinal relationships with families. But to best care for children and families, we must re-design our care delivery to actively partner both other health care providers (like adult medicine, obstetrics-gynecology and psychiatry), educators and community organizations; develop novel programs; and bring the best of existing evidence into our daily practice.

The Center, in collaboration with BMC Pediatrics Primary Care is creating the Pediatric Practice of the Future that:

  • Empowers families to define their health priorities and design their own care
  • Provides care to the family
  • Provides new opportunities to promote social and emotional child health
  • Develops deeper community partnerships
  • Leverages technology to provide flexible care options and facilitate communication
  • Re-thinks the composition and roles of care team members
