The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Receives Grant to Study Tailoring Pediatric Preventive Care to Individual Needs

n the project include co-investigators Christopher Forrest, M.D., Ph.D., and James Guevara, M.D., M.P.H; and statistician Russell Localio, Ph.D. Forrest helped develop the questionnaire, which includes predictors such as sociodemographics, birth weight, family environment, child care and receipt of health care.

"The importance of this study is very practical: We know early school failure is related to developmental delays," Pati explains. "We picked out 10 to 15 items that will have reasonable predictive accuracy to how children perform in school by age seven. We want to identify those children who can benefit from more services as early as possible."

Dr. Pati currently is a pediatrician and health services researcher who examines the impact of policy on health care access for underserved children and families. She is an attending general pediatrician at Children's Hospital and Senior Fellow with the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics and Associate Scholar at the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of Pennsylvania. Her prior work focused on the impact of welfare reform on underserved populations and trends in public spending on social welfare programs. Presently, she is funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development to identify predictors of Medicaid retention among underserved children and families and to examine the impact of maternal health literacy on participation in child social welfare programs.

The Commonwealth Fund, among the first private foundations started by a woman philanthropist -- Anna M. Harkness -- was established in 1918 with the broad charge to enhance the common good. The mission of The Commonwealth Fund is to promote a high performing health care system that achieves better access, improved quality, and greater efficiency, particularly for society's most vulnerable, including low-income people, the uninsured, minority Americans, young children, and elderly ad
