Health Care Coordination
Child Health Investment Partnership (CHIP) of Roanoke Valley connects guardians and their children with doctors, specialists, pediatric dentists and a counselor, if needed to make sure appointments are scheduled and kept, enhancing the health of each child. Child Health Investment Partnership reviews medical records and coordinates care with the child’s doctor and dentist. Transportation is provided to these appointments to improve access to care.
Health Care Coordination is specific to the needs of each family. This may begin with pregnancy education for the mother or support services for the child that has been discharged from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Registered nurses may also provide asthma case management, oral health education and fluoride varnishes, nutrition education and smoking cessation strategies. Child Health Investment Partnership (CHIP) of Roanoke staff assist children in receiving and completing the recommended immunizations, well child visits, lead screenings and developmental interventions by kindergarten entry.
