"We are Great Medical Home Neighbors," Says Pediatric PM&R Physician Amy Houtrow, MD, PhD, MPH


"I love to be able to share information with the child's other providers so that we're all on the same page about a path forward. Lots of kids with disabilities see multiple specialists and it can be very challenging in the outpatient pediatric space to navigate and manage it all."

Pediatric physical medicine and rehabilitation physician Dr Amy Houtrow told Patient Care® recently that clinicians in the specialty are "really great medical home neighbors," and that regular collaboration among all health care professionals on a disabled child's care team can make a big difference in outcomes.

Amy Houtrow, MD, PhD, MPH, is chief of pediatric rehabilitation medicine at the UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh; endowed professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation and pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine; and secretary of the Board of Governors of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
