For Healthcare And Wellbeing Partners
Parent Connext provides an innovative approach to patient care for parents that can save you time and improve outcomes for families.
What is Parent Connext®?
Parent Connext®’s goal is to connect families to resources, plus provide one clear next step for their parenting journey. Our Child Development experts provide doctors with a valuable, proven resource for their patients behavioral concerns and social questions. This frees doctors to focus on what they do best, the physical health and development of their patients.
Patients referred to Parent Connext® are screened for environmental influences on their family that could cause stress and create parenting challenges. We then focus on positive parenting strategies that can improve the parent-child relationship. After just three sessions, parents have reported an improvement in parent/ child relationship, self-care, self-confidence as a parent, and self-satisfaction.

Parent Connext® Becomes a Critical
Component Of Community Healthcare
Parent Connext® is an added resource to your team to pick up where a pediatrician leaves off when parental stressors and challenges arise. It has been designated a ‘Promising Practice’ by the Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs and evidence-based by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
By introducing Parent Connext® into your offices and networks, doctors are freed up and focused allowing them to do what they do best – focus on physical health and treatment.
Dr. Jon Mumma has had a parent coach in his office since the program’s inception. “It just makes sense. Pediatricians have about 15 minutes with each patient for a routine checkup, and the parent often asks a question about how to cope with the child’s behavior. Those things come up as ‘Oh, by the way … ,’. Having a coach in the office gets parents in the right place quickly. Our staff and even our physicians are happy to discuss your questions.”
