Introducing the APA CARE Project!

Advanced Pediatrics is happy to announce that we are one of six pediatric practices in the Denver area to participate in the CARE (Coordinating All Resources Effectively) Project. The CARE project was designed to simplify coordination of care for Medicaid children with complex medical needs. The goals of the Care Project are increased patient quality of life, decreased caregiver burden, and improved coordination of care between the child’s primary care provider and specialists, schools, therapists and other services. Medicaid children with complex medical needs will be entered into the CARE registry and contacted by an Advanced Pediatrics’ Care Coordinator. The Care Coordinator will be the point of contact for coordination of care between our practice and other members of the child’s care team. Components of the CARE program for each child include:

  • Central Care Management – coordination of information between providers and services

  • Dynamic Care Team – family, primary care provider, specialists, schools, therapists, care coordinator, family navigator

  • Care Plan – goals for care of child established by care team

  • Access Plan –  list of care providers and when to contact -- so that family knows how to contact the right provider for the right care at all times (also outlines when a trip to the emergency department is warranted)

Advanced Pediatrics has hired two Care Coordinators and a Family Navigator to facilitate care for our patients with complex medical needs. Our Care Coordinators are responsible for helping families coordinate their medical needs and our Family Navigator is responsible for connecting families with community resources when needed. Although the CARE project was developed for Medicaid children, our Care Coordinators and Family Navigator are also available to serve as a resource for other patients with complex medical needs.

If you have a child with complex medical needs and would like to be considered for the CARE project, please contact one of the following:

Care Coordinators:  Sarah McGrath:  720-974-7170 and Shauna Kelly-Moore, RN:  303-699-6200, option 2

Family Navigator:  Susie Soroka:  720-974-7170
