Children's Combined Center for Pediatric IBD combines the efforts of all pediatric gastroenterologists in the greater Atlanta area and works in close collaboration with Emory University School of Medicine. We offer a comprehensive, multidisciplinary team approach that allows your child to be seen by many providers in one visit.
Our program actively participates in the ImproveCareNow network, the leading learning health network for children in the United States and worldwide. Gastroenterologists, clinicians, researchers, parents and families from all participating centers collaborate to improve the care and health of all children and adolescents with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, also known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease or IBD. For decades there have been no significant improvements in remission rates for patients with IBD. ImproveCareNow has changed that. Since ImproveCareNow began, the percentage of registered patients with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis who are in remission has increased from 50% to 77%, using our existing medical therapies. ImproveCareNow provides tools and support that your team at Children’s uses to deliver more reliable and proactive care to your child.
