Transitions of Care
A transition of care appointment is necessary so Dr. Moemeka has all the information about your child’s health history after your child goes to the emergency room, urgent care, retail clinic, or hospital. Visits to these places usually happen because your child is sick. Often you leave with a new diagnosis, new treatments, or questions about what to do next. Dr. Moemeka wants to bridge your child back to Mark9 Pediatrics, your medical home.
A medical home provides continuous and comprehensive medical care for your child through a coordinated team that is led by your child’s primary care physician. As your child’s pediatrician, Dr. Moemeka provides a hub for the health history. She will see your child within a few days of urgent care, emergency room, retail clinic or hospital stays to help with coordinating any treatment plans and services your child needs, and to update the health history. It also gives her an opportunity to speak with you about how your child’s illness may affect growth and development.
