Mission

Making healthcare a reality for every kid.

Notes from the nonprofit

PediPlace is different from other clinics in the volume of patients and breadth of care provided. Our paid medical staff of a Pediatrician, Licensed Pediatric Nurse Practitioners and Medical Assistants is complemented by volunteer Pediatricians and Specialists. Our nurse practitioner practice model maximizes quality healthcare services in a very cost effective business model. Since access to care is a problem for underinsured children, their illnesses are more acute than in private pediatric practices. This acuteness often requires specialty care which PediPlace offers through our extensive referral network. This network allows uninsured children access to orthopedic, pulmonary, cardiac, and neurologic care. Our focus of being the patient's medical home allows continuity of care without duplication of services. Economic, language and cultural needs of our patients sets our organization apart. Language and cultural barriers are barriers to care. Our multicultural bilingual medical and office staff gives Spanish speaking clients access and understanding of the care they receive in their own language. We work closely with our growing Asian population to have translators available during visits.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Wall Street Journal reported: Direct investments in low-income children’s health and education have historically had the highest impact on social welfare (July 23, 2019). Ongoing stable access to pediatric primary care has never been more important. Texas has the highest rate of uninsured children in the nation (Beyond ABC, published by Children’s Medical). Children of color are more likely to be uninsured, especially Hispanic children. It is estimated that hundreds of thousands of additional Texas children have lost health insurance in 2020 due to their parents losing jobs in the COVID-19 economic slow-down. Additionally, child immunization rates are declining. In 2019, Texas saw the highest number of measles cases since 1994. And, many families have delayed vaccinations due to the pandemic. We are working to ensure all of our patients are current on their vaccines. In 2021, we expect to provide primary pediatric healthcare services to 6,004 patients in 20,644 office visits.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Illness to Wellness Program

Our Illness to Wellness Program provides care for sick children with illnesses such as flu, sore throat, viruses, and ear infections and follow-up care for children with chronic illness such as asthma, ADHD and obesity.

Our goal is to ensure that uninsured and underinsured sick children receive the proper medical care needed to recover.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Our Healthy Kids Program provides preventive care to children. Preventive care includes annual physicals for children ages 2+, eight well child visits recommended for children ages birth - 2 years, and the 40 immunizations recommended for children ages birth to ten. Well-child, preventive care is a vital component of PediPlace’s services. Healthy children mean a healthier community with better students, better employees, and better lives.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

An important component of PediPlace’s programs is family education and health promotion. We focus on developing partnerships with parents to teach parents and children about their health concerns, medicines and the proper use of the emergency room.

Newborn Education: We are concerned that new parents receive the appropriate education about providing care to newborn children and proper instruction on how to and when to access our services. The PediPlace licensed providers provide parents the knowledge and tools to help their newborns grow up healthy and includes information about check-ups, immunizations, nutrition, when to and when not to use the emergency room, developmental expectations and child safety.

Cross Cultural Health Promotion: The economic, cultural and language challenges experienced by our families creates barriers in accessing regular healthcare. Through regularly scheduled visits in our Healthy Babies and Healthy Kids Programs, our providers establish a partnership with parents and caretakers. The trust and understanding built in this partnership increases the overall health and well-being of the entire family. For our Hispanic patients, bilingual, culturally-aware medical providers and assistants are able to address specific concerns. Our providers spend considerable time educating our families on the different stages of child development, proper nutrition and specific needs for their child or children.

Population(s) Served
Parents
Families

PediPlace’s Healthy Babies program provides the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended 6 well visits at no charge to our families of uninsured children ages 0-15 months.

Population(s) Served
Infants and toddlers

PediPlace became a designated Reach out and Read program site to promote parents’ reading to their children of all ages. Each patient receives an age appropriate book at the beginning of every well visit, ages 6 months through five years.

Literacy is promoted, a library established, and stronger reading readiness at kindergarten and first grade is achieved.

Population(s) Served
Infants and toddlers

Provides funds for medication, laboratory testing, and other needs of families of uninsured and underinsured children.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Through a unique partnership with the Lewisville Independent School District, this pediatric clinic opened in February 2016 and is located on-site at Central Elementary School and provides access to healthcare for low-income, at-risk school children.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Our patient population already have barriers to care including mental health services that have intensified during the COVID-19 pandemic. PediPlace patient data reflects significant increases of behavioral/mental health diagnosis the past year compared to 6 months pre-COVID-19. Anxiety increased 811%, hypertension 8%, depression 7%, high risk sexual behavior 386%, the rate of obesity 1153% and asthma- often brought on by anxiety- rose 454%.

Funding a clinical social worker allows us to facilitate complex cases. Direct referral and access to in-house services in a trusted environment, enhance our medical home and timely and completely address these issues. Our diverse population have their own anxiety, & mistrust of systems creating additional barriers. Food & shelter insecurity & access to technology that already existed are greater during COVID-19’s emotional and economic challenges. Integrated services enhance opportunities & health of our patients.

A clinical social worker at PediPlace will provide services to assist patients and their families to remain integrated/ functional part of the local community. The social worker can assist patients and their family system to navigate the complex medical and mental health care system and provide child and adolescent therapy to address issues of anxiety, depression, substance abuse, sexual behavior, and others, using a variety of techniques. In addition, the clinical social worker will provide knowledge and guidance to families to assist accessing resources to alleviate economic and other hardship created by the coronavirus pandemic. Providing immediate direct counseling to patients provides more time for the healthcare provider to address presenting and underlying medical needs more efficiently.
A child receiving these additional behavioral health services at PediPlace will be required to be an established PediPlace patient and be internally referred for these behavior/mental health services by the PediPlace primary care provider.

Funding provides the needed significant resource to add a clinical social worker to our clinic care team and enhances the medical home concept promoted by PediPlace and an integral component of a Patient Centered Medical Home as defined by NCQA. The result increases the availability of behavioral/mental health services to PediPlace patients during a time of increased need as a result of COVID-19 and evidenced by their own medical record. Integrating these services into the pediatric primary care setting is recommended by the AAP, NANAP and Medicaid/CHIP. The result is an integrated approach where physicians and health care providers ally with ancillary staff and supporters.
