We’re working to make health care equally available to all children.
Medical care represents only a fraction of what we should consider when we think about health. We know that a child’s health is by more than just medical care — it’s their home, school, community and more.
That’s why Nemours is investing in what we call a Value-Based Services Organization (VBSO). This organization includes teams devoted to population health, care management and coordination, and more, all working together. It encourages collaboration between Nemours specialists and independent physicians in the community. The goal is to transform children’s health care everywhere, going beyond medicine and improving the health of the world in which every child lives.
We will do this with things like preventive care and health education so that patients are healthier in the first place. We will work with partners and communities to make the places where children live, learn and play healthier and safe. All of this will improve health outcomes, quality of care, accessibility, quality of life and reduce costs.
