Children with medically complex conditions represent approximately 3 million children accounting for 40% of Medicaid spending on children. Growing at 6% annually, they are among the most rapidly growing sectors of the pediatric population.
As hospitals struggle to manage costs, length of stays and utilization of hospital resources, moving children with medical complexities through the continuum of care is critical. Meeting the clinical, social and emotional needs of this population and their families while managing costs can be challenging.
Almost Home Kids envisions the presence of new facilities to service the needs of children with complex medical conditions and their families in their own communities throughout the country.
Our proven transitional care model, consulting methodology and expertise significantly improves the likelihood of program sustainability and successful implementation.
We’ve developed a program offering with all you need to open an Almost Home Kids in your community and a consulting methodology to assist you with initial planning through implementation.
With over 10 years of experience, our proven transitional care model, consulting methodology and expertise significantly improves the likelihood of program sustainability and successful implementation.
