About Yogman Pediatrics
We welcome you as a patient to Yogman Pediatrics and appreciate the opportunity to provide you with the finest pediatric care for your family. At Yogman Pediatrics we will strive to ensure that every family receives: comprehensive, fully-coordinated medical, developmental, and behavioral health care that is individually-tailored to your family’s needs and the ages and stages of your children. This includes referrals and coordination with schools, community agencies, social service organizations, financial and insurance resources and medical specialists.
From the early newborn months through the school age and teen years and the later transition to adulthood, Yogman Pediatrics will partner with you in creating a Medical Home for you and your child.
Yogman Pediatrics Awarded Federal Grant - 2011
We are pleased to announce that Yogman Pediatrics, along with several primary care practices in Massachusetts, has recently been awarded a federal grant funded by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services and administered under the Massachusetts Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA), to work with state and national experts on a three year project to improve our care using the model of a pediatric medical home. We completed this project in 2013 and became a patient centered medical home.
Yogman Pediatrics Awarded Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Quality Grant - 2014
The renewal grant continues to support a care coordinator/social worker, combining both case management skills for children with complex special health care needs, behavioral health counseling and referral skills and linkage with community agencies, particularly schools.
This grant has enabled Yogman Pediatric Associates to hire a Pediatric Licensed Social Worker, Susan Betjemann, who provides both care coordination for children with special health care needs and integrated behavioral health services. This social worker consults with doctors, does on-site assessment, referral, and short-term treatment of families with behavioral health needs.
The grant is being used to pilot this model of expanded pediatric care coordination/behavioral health for our pediatric practice. It will be evaluated and we hope it will show that it improves the quality of care and the parents’ experience of care so that this model can be disseminated to other pediatric practices. The second year of funding supports the evaluation of this project and patients may be asked to fill out a survey.
