December 28, 2015•8 min
The Children’s Mercy Beacon Program provides a patient-centered primary care medical home for children with the most complex special needs, as well as for their siblings. The Beacon team communicates with health care providers in clinics, hospitals, schools and at home to coordinate care and assist with transition throughout the health care system. The program streamlines the health care process for families with at least one child with medical complexity, from birth to 21 years, and their siblings. Amber Hoffman,MD is here to discuss how care is coordinated across multiple specialties to simplify appointment scheduling and to reduce patent visits and inpatient admissions.
