Well-Child Visits in the First 15 Months of Life

What Are We Tracking And Why? 

Well-child visits are recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics at regular intervals to monitor growth, development, and psychosocial functioning. Immunizations and preventive counseling are also provided at well-child visits. To ensure we are providing the best level of care at the recommended developmental stages, we keep track of how many of our patients have had at least 6 well-child visits by the time they reach 15 months of age.

How Are We Doing? 


 

What Are We Doing To Improve? 

We contact the caregivers of our patients to schedule well-child visits in advance. We perform well-child visits during acute minor illness appointments, whenever possible. We also educate the caregivers of our patients on the importance of well-child visits, and when they should be scheduled.

What Can You Do? 

Make an appointment to bring your child to the Pediatric Primary Care Medical Home for all recommended well-child visits and immunizations. Sign up for Secure Messaging to receive email reminders when your child is due for a well-child visit. If you move out of the area or decide to seek care elsewhere, call TRICARE at (877) TRICARE (874-2273) or visit the TRICARE website to enroll your child to another pediatric clinic. If you have questions about your child’s care, or want to schedule an appointment, please contact the Pediatric Primary Care Medical Home.
