A collaborative child development tracker for you and your care team

Pathfinder Health aims to improve the way early pediatric care is delivered and will help parents better understand their child's development.

We can provide the right guidance and support when concerns are identified through building solutions that increase access to screening and diagnostic tools. 

Through the use of technology, new care models, and unique partnerships with leading care and research centers, we will increase screening rates and diagnose sooner, leading to faster care and better outcomes.

The current system is broken.

Developmental delays and disabilities such as autism affect 1 in 5 children. Yet, only 1 in 30 get the help they need before age 3. This means most children receive treatments after the critical early intervention window when most of the major brain structures are mature, and it becomes more difficult (and expensive) to make significant changes.

Your child's developmental health is guesswork.
Every child is different, and the Internet is full of advice from unqualified people. There are lots of gray areas and the game changes daily as your children grow.

You miss out on a lot of major milestones.
When you're a working parent, you child spends more time with a nanny or in daycare than with you, and you worry caregivers might miss the signs of developmental delays. 

Developmental delays are easily missed even by doctors.
In a quick 15-minute rare visits to your pediatrician, lengthy developmental screenings are often overlooked*, your concerns may be downplayed or ignored.

 

— Less than 33% adherence to AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) developmental screening guidelines.

It takes too long to get the help you need.
 When a problem is identified, the wait* for services may exceed the window of opportunity for the best treatment outcomes.

 

— The national average wait time for developmental pediatric evaluations is approximately 5 months. 

From Worry to Care in Weeks, Not Years

"It takes a village to raise a child." Your child's care team is your Village, and through Pathfinder, this unit can connect and collaborate to achieve earlier data tracking, earlier intervention, and earlier diagnosis for your child. This leads to quicker care plan creation, lower long-term needs, and ultimately greater normalcy for your family.  

Pathfinder offers a place to begin for all parents. The main challenges many encounter when seeking clinical advice on child development is the lack of specialist availability and lengthy appointment waiting periods. Pathfinder meets these challenges as a tool that can be used from home, daycare, or anywhere. In addition to time recovered, cost is reduced as this service amounts to less than your annual co-pays. Together, we can help you get from concern to care in as little as 8 weeks, not years.
