 If you are interested in participating in Co-Management and would like to set up an orientation with providers in your practice, please email the project coordinator for Co-Management, Michele Krivickas, mkrivickas@connecticutchildrens.org.

 

What Is Co-Management?

The Co-Management model of care is characterized by:

  • Pediatric sub-specialists lending expertise to help primary care providers gain core competencies necessary to provide appropriate levels of care in a medical home environment for children with higher volume, lower acuity conditions.
  • Improved collaboration and communication between primary care providers and pediatric sub-specialists.
  • A "best of both worlds" situation for patients who are able to access the expert knowledge of pediatric sub-specialists while receiving more of their care from their primary care provider, increasing their comfort and making treatment more convenient.
