Patti's Place: Vital Pediatrics for Complex Kids, LLC, Selected as a "Promising practice spotlight" by the American Academy of Pediatrics

Patti's Place: Vital Pediatrics for Complex Kids, LLC has been selected by the American Academy of Pediatrics as a "Promising Practice Spotlight" for telehealth. This honor highlights practices that offer replicable strategies that pediatric clinicians can implement within delivery of telehealth care. It is part of an AAP grant, "Supporting Providers and Families to Access Telehealth and Distant Care Services in Pediatric Care".

Expanding Access to Pediatric Palliative Care

One practice leveraged telehealth to expand access to pediatric palliative care services across their state. Patients and families/caregivers across an entire state are now able to access this subspecialty care, even those who previously did not live geographically close to a tertiary care center.
