“Medical Homes Really Work – Reducing Emergency Department/Urgent Care Overuse”
A presentation by James K. Todd, MD & Steven R. Poole, MD

Friday October 18th
12:30 – 1:30PM in Mt. Oxford Auditorium
2nd Floor Conference and Education Center 13123 E. 16th Avenue, Aurora, Colorado

Steve and Jim, among many others in the Department of Pediatrics and Children’s Hospital Colorado, have been advocating for the pediatric medical home for many years. In 2006, Steve created the Colorado Children’s Healthcare Access Program (CCHAP) which successfully worked with other advocates, Colorado State Medicaid and pediatric practices to increase the percentage of practices accepting Medicaid children from 20% to nearly 100%, while addressing many process issues that improved access to and quality of care.

In 2007, Jim led a coalition of stakeholders and policymakers to adopt Colorado legislation that defined the medical home for children with the assertion in statute that ”the best medical care for infants, children, and adolescents is provided through a medical home . . . medical care provided through emergency departments, walk-in clinics, and other urgent-care facilities is often more costly and less effective than care given by a physician with prior knowledge of the child and his or her family.”

Join us on October 18th to answer the questions:

1) Can the pediatric medical home reduce ED/urgent care visits?
2) Can it reduce overall cost of care?
3) Can it improve quality of care and satisfaction?
4) Is the medical home only for children with special health care needs?
