What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Every Child Pediatrics was established in 1996 by a pediatrician because of the barriers low-income children face to accessing high-quality health care. We believe that all children, no matter their circumstances, deserves high-quality health care and an opportunity to reach their full potential. Here is more evidence of the need and the problems that children face: - 168,793 children in Colorado live in poverty* - 55,424 children in Colorado are uninsured* - Uninsured children are four times as likely to have gone at least a year without seeing a health care professional** - More than 500,000 children in Colorado do not receive coordinated, ongoing, comprehensive care within a medical home like Every Child Pediatrics.*** In addition, the number of uninsured children rose by about 10,000 between 2017 and 2019, and this has disproportionately affected Hispanic children. Children also face barriers related to dental and behavioral health care.

Charting impact

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

Every Child Pediatrics is focused on strengthening our comprehensive care model and serving more children who lack access to quality health care. Our strategic priorities include quality improvement, expansion of medical offices and integrated services, strengthening team-based care, increasing funding from outside sources (grants, donations, sponsorships), and branding. In the realm of quality improvement, we are building capacity to consistently track key metrics that measure clinical, operations, and financial performance. We have training initiatives focused on helping clinical teams communicate effectively and work at the top of their scope to strengthen relationships with our patients, improve coordination of care and improve outcomes. We’re expanding our behavioral health and dental programs and implementing a new approach to early childhood screening and intervention in partnership with HealthySteps. We are working on a number of efforts to expand our supporter base and identify additional sources of revenue beyond billed patient fees.

In conjunction with the Board of Directors and key partners, Every Child Pediatrics continuously refines our strategies and priorities to reach our goals. We rely on data and survey patients to drive our initiatives. And we seek ways to be stay in tune with the current needs of our communities.

We completed a branding initiative that resulted in becoming Every Child Pediatrics, a name that more effectively conveys our mission and value, and now we are executing marketing and outreach plans with the brand. We’re also focused on recruiting and retaining talent. In the midst of a competitive job market, we are working hard to improve onboarding processes and professional development trainings, monitor market trends related to benefits and compensation and cultivate an exciting and supportive work environment. We’re also seeking ways to increase our impact. In 2017, we identified a high need for care among low-income children in the Lakewood community and opened a new medical office in that community in June 2018. In August 2018, we opened a new school-based center at Gateway High School in Aurora and will open another new school-based health center at the Dolores school campus later this fall. Progress toward this plan is measured primarily through data and execution timelines. Examples of metrics include: percent of patients up to date on well child checks, patients with high depression scores that had a follow up visit with a behavioral health consultant, call wait times and call abandonment rates, number of referrals made to medical specialists and other community resources, number of outreach calls and percentage of referrals that are closed due to the patient following through, annual dollars raised from various sources, staff turnover rates, and a public awareness survey using our new name following various marketing campaigns. All of these metrics and more are regularly analyzed and discussed by the Leadership Team and the Board of Directors.

Every Child Pediatrics is strongly positioned to achieve our goals because of our sound financial practices, our longstanding history of impact, our strong relationships in the community and the high-level reputation we garner based on the excellent work that is done every day in our medical offices by our committed staff. We have successfully secured grants to adopt new technology systems and to advance innovative programs that will support our ambitious care goals and keep us well positioned to maximize value-based payments from payors.

In addition, Every Child Pediatrics is a Colorado pioneer in delivering comprehensive, integrated health care to vulnerable children. Our integrated primary health care model follows the best practices of the patient-centered medical home model and numerous studies have indicated benefits to the health of children and families and reduction in costs. According to a 2014 report, titled “The Patient-Centered Medical Home’s Impact on Cost & Quality,” by the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative, which reviewed over 20 studies of patient-centered medical home initiatives:
• Costs dropped by 57% when looking at per member per month costs, return on investment and total cost of care.
• Unnecessary and avoidable services such as hospital readmissions dropped 29%
• Population health indicators, such as screenings and immunizations increased 29%
• Overall access to primary care clinicians and face to face visits improved 29%

We participate in numerous initiatives to advance integrated care, improve best practices such as team-based care and population management that demonstrate the amazing value that primary care provides to community health and well-being. Primary care is considered the lynch pin to effective health systems. And integrating behavioral health and other services are the benchmark for the best performing practices. That’s why we are part of the State Innovation Model (SIM) program that is funded by federal grants. More information about that program is available at https://www.coloradohealthinstitute.org/research/colorado-state-innovation-model-sim.

In terms of demonstrating our impact, our average patient satisfaction score, measured through a paper survey filled out by parents at the end of visits, is 9.3 on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the highest level of satisfaction. The percentage of patients who are up to date on annual exams is 63% compared to below 60% among Medicaid patients statewide. With adolescents, our success rate with annual exams is even better – 55% compared to the state average of 37%. In the area of behavioral health, 54% of our adolescent patients were screened for depression, compared to 3% of adolescents in the statewide Medicaid population. And among the adolescents who were screened, we provided on-site behavioral health counseling to 26% of these patients who needed extra support after high risks were identified in the visit. We continue to work hard to improve our impact and metrics year over year.

We have seen year over year increases in the number of children served. In particular, our integrated programs, such as behavioral health and dental, have seen significant growth.
