Pediatric Practice Transformation

Docs for Tots is a pediatrician-led nonprofit focused on improving outcomes for children prenatally through age 5 by fostering practice transformation and systems change.

Technical Assistance for Pediatric Practices

Since 2014, Docs for Tots has been working with pediatric providers on Long Island to sustainably implement standardized screening tools into practice via technical assistance using a quality improvement approach. Practices participating in Docs for Tots’ screening improvement projects have successfully maintained screening implementation at an average of 95%.

Docs for Tots is pleased to also offer this technical assistance to medical practices across the country who are looking to implement or improve their processes for the following:

Docs for Tots can work with your practice in-person and/or virtually. In addition to providing content expertise, we partner with you to learn how your site functions, identify areas of opportunity, develop a screening process that can be shared across staff, and overcome barriers that arise. Partner sites will benefit from adaptable materials for staff and patients, assistance with adapting electronic medical records, establishing referral protocols, and education around quality improvement methodology that can be utilized for future work.

Email quality@docsfortots.org for more information.

Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Credit

Providers can also earn ABFM or ABP MOC credit in our self-guided online MOC course. The course is based on the processes we developed for pediatric practices during our technical assistance projects. Individual providers, or multiple providers in a pediatric practice, can sign up for MOC credit. Enrollees can always contact us with questions as they proceed through the course.

NYActs

The NYActs project, led by Docs for Tots, increases the capacity to coordinate statewide efforts around developmental promotion and early identification. Addressing COVID-19 concerns, it utilizes LTSAE activities, resources and materials. The NYActs work is funded by the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as part of the CDC’s Learn the Signs, Act Early Campaign.
