Oxygen Mask Episode 24: Insights from a care coordinator


In Episode 24, Beth interviews Tara Mahin, a Care Coordinator in the pediatric practice that cares for both of Beth’s kids. The two discuss ways care coordinators can help parents of medically complex kids, including parents raising kids with autism. The conversation illustrates how a little help goes a long way in helping families navigate systems more efficiently, lending continuity to care, and providing and a “warm handoff” among providers. Listen in and check out the show notes to learn more about accessing care coordination.
