Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Children who are born with or develop lifelong illnesses are subject to greater healthcare needs than their peers, and often lack sufficient support to provide for those needs. Barriers to care are often economic, social, geographical, or some combination thereof.

Brades' Place works to identify patients with unmet medical needs and remove or minimize the barriers that keep them from accessing the medical care they need. We do this, and will continue to do this, by providing our services with as little financial burden as possible (implementation of patient grants, foundations, sliding-scale fees, etc), by providing care in the home and utilizing telehealth (improving accessibility), and by providing holistic, supportive services to patients and their families that increase overall health and wellness and decrease the need for more acute medical interventions.

We also recognize that true healthcare equality must happen on a micro and macro level. We are presently working to form a coalition of pediatric palliative care providers in our geographical region, and have regular meetings with our health department to problem solve the need for greater support for children with lifelong illnesses. We have laid the groundwork for legislative action to increase the available resources to these children and their families, and will continue to advocate for these patients in their greater communities.

  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
