Transforming Pediatrics to Support Population Health
The evidence is clear: When children and families receive adequate health care services, the whole of society benefits. But achieving long-term population health equity won’t be simple. It will require the transformation of pediatric primary care, and the support and participation of all payers and regulators. This policy brief, co-authored by Robert Seifert, MPA, and Hilary Deignan, JD, MEd, describes how redesigning pediatric primary care will deliver benefits to children, families, and our communities at-large. And it explains why it is important for all insurers to participate, and how innovative new policies can help make it happen.
