Healthcare transition outcomes among autistic youth at KPNC

The study follows a cohort of autistic and non-autistic youth longitudinally to examine several transition indicators measurable in the EHR including: continuation of medications and other treatments during the transition years; length of time elapsed between last pediatric appointment and first adult primary care appointment; and frequency of unnecessary visits to the emergency department and hospitalizations. Evidence will be used to enhance KP’s delivery model for the transition of autistic youth from pediatric to adult health care.
