Cincinnati Children’s, Parkview announce pediatric care collaboration

September 17, 2018
Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and Parkview Health announced today they are collaborating to expand pediatric care in cardiology, gastroenterology and general surgery to families in the Fort Wayne region. 

The collaboration will include innovative telehealth consultations that will allow a family and their Parkview physician to conduct a video conference with a specialty physician at Cincinnati Children’s, allowing physicians to work together on a child’s care plan. This approach brings advanced care to the patient, reducing or even eliminating the need for travel to receive care. For patients who require inpatient care at Cincinnati Children’s, a coordinated approach for referrals and local follow-up appointments will streamline care. 

Additionally, Cincinnati Children’s will provide training to Parkview physicians and clinical teams and share best practices to improve patient outcomes. Examples include protocol sharing, access to education, case reviews and diagnostics.
