The Model

HealthySteps partners with pediatric primary care providers to support parents and improve the health and well-being of babies and toddlers so they are prepared for school and life.

HealthySteps is a population-based, risk-stratified model that helps to operationalize and enhance the American Academy of Pediatrics Bright Futures recommendations.

The HealthySteps Specialist, a child development expert, joins the pediatric primary care team to ensure universal screening, provide successful interventions, referrals, and follow-up to the whole family.

HealthySteps Specialists build strong relationships with families and providers and the lives of children and families improve. Because of HealthySteps, families receive early preventive services and the entire practice also benefits–HealthySteps increases the efficiency of the medical system and supports team-based comprehensive care.
