TRANSIT: Transmural care and interdisciplinary collaboration for children with chronic medical conditions and psychosocial comorbidity
One out of four children with a severe medical condition also shows vulnerability from a psychosocial perspective. They are limited in school attendance and have significant delays in reaching developmental milestones. In addition, they, as well as their family, have difficulties implementing disease management tasks into daily life, negatively impacting their health outcomes. The TRANSIT project aims to improve interdisciplinary care and collaboration between healthcare professionals in the Amalia Children’s Hospital as well as in primary care. In close collaboration with children and their parents, a digital environment will be developed, providing an interdisciplinary treatment plan and information about the psychosocial impact of the disease in daily life. In addition, the digital environment will support interdisciplinary and transmural communication and consultation. During the course of the project, health care use will be monitored as well as children’s participation in school and sick leave of the parents.

The project closely fits with recent developments in child care in the Netherlands (Medical Child Care system), as well as Amalia plan to implementing organization of care from the perspective of the patient
