Every child deserves health care designed just for them. That's especially true for children with chronic and complex medical conditions. These children often see multiple specialists and require additional support services. Navigating this can be an especially challenging journey for them, their families and their providers. The Complex Care Clinic team in Fort Worth is here to help. We will provide a holistic approach to coordinating patient care and helping families connect to the services they need.
The goal of our multidisciplinary team is to centralize all of the child's care needs. Care that's centered on providing the best outcomes for a child takes teamwork, and we take that very seriously. We work with each family to develop individualized care plans for their child and then provide the tools and support needed to carry out the plans. That can include:
- Providing wrap-around services such as nutrition and social services
- Managing the child's clinical and non-clinical needs
- Getting prior insurance authorizations
- Providing telemedicine visits for durable medical equipment and supplies requests
- Helping families with paperwork and finding community resources and support
- Medical home and primary care
- Specialty services coordination
- Vision, dental, hearing and learning difficulties
- Adult transitional care
