NNCC Partners With CHOP to Launch Innovative Home Visiting Model

Sep 05, 2019 | Nurse-Led Care News |

National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC), a PHMC subsidiary, has partnered with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) to design and implement an integrated nursing staffing model at CHOP’s Cobbs Creek primary care site. Funded by Vanguard’s Strong Start for Kids Program™, the project will integrate home visiting nurses into the pediatric primary care setting and aims to improve the health and well-being of mothers and their young children.

"Families served by nurse home visitors are often facing complex social issues and require enhanced services beyond the scope of what evidence-based home visiting models can typically independently provide," said Sarah Hexem Hubbard, Esq, executive director of NNCC. "We are excited to embark on this visionary journey to intentionally integrate our services with CHOP Primary Care in order to address the health and well-being of families, and see this integration as critical to achieving overall impact and outcomes for our communities."

CHOP’s PolicyLab will work closely with NNCC to improve efficiencies, reduce burden across providers and, ultimately, improve patient care. Researchers at PolicyLab will also evaluate the new model of care to see if it improves child health outcomes, reduces trips to the emergency room, increases parental awareness of quality child care options, and improves staff satisfaction and retention.
