Over the last 6 months, MATCH has partnered with the Harriet Lane Pediatric Primary Care Clinic to help our providers identify our patients in foster care. The MATCH program provides our clinic with a monthly list of children in MATCH that are assigned to our clinic. Prior to this collaboration, we had no routine way of knowing which of our patients were entering or exiting foster care, which can impact their health and receipt of medical care. Kim and Kenya have been wonderful to work with and I look forward to continuing our collaboration together to improve the medical care we provide to children in foster care in Baltimore City.
