Care Management and Coordination
As a founding member of the New York City Collaborative for Children and Families, The Foundling provides comprehensive care management for the young people in our foster care and prevention programs, and other children in our community, many of whom have complex and intersecting medical and mental health needs. Our Care Management Team also serves children and families who are not receiving other services through the Foundling.
The Foundling’s team of care managers works tirelessly to ensure that children and youth have access to all of the services they need, with a goal of improving care and health outcomes, lowering Medicaid costs, and reducing preventable hospitalizations, emergency room visits, and unnecessary care for Medicaid members. This level of care coordination ensures that health care services are deeply in-tune with and responsive to the patients’ and families’ needs.
