Grants

Yogman Pediatrics Awarded Heros Grant from JPB Foundation - 2017

The JPB Research Network on Toxic Stress, a project of the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University is partnering with Yogman Pediatrics to field test how to best measure individual levels of stress in healthy individual children from birth to age five.

Yogman Pediatrics was also awarded a Mount Auburn Hospital Seed Grant in 2017 to provide additional funding for this project.

Yogman Pediatrics Awarded Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Quality Grant - 2013-2015

The renewal grant continues to support a care coordinator/social worker, combining both case management skills for children with complex special health care needs, behavioral health counseling and referral skills and linkage with community agencies, particularly schools.

This grant has enabled Yogman Pediatric Associates to hire a Pediatric Licensed Social Worker, Susan Betjemann, who provides both care coordination for children with special health care needs and integrated behavioral health services.  This social worker consults with doctors, does on-site assessment, referral, and short-term treatment of families with behavioral health needs. 

The data have been analyzed and published in Clin Pediatrics and show improvements in patient experience, quality outcomes and cost (see Publications).

Yogman Pediatrics Awarded Federal Grant - 2011

We are pleased to announce that Yogman Pediatrics, along with several primary care practices in Massachusetts, has recently been awarded a federal grant funded by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services and administered under the  Massachusetts Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA), to work with state and national experts on a three year project to improve our care using the model of a pediatric medical home. We completed this project in 2013 and became a patient centered medical home.
