    Objective

    To assess the use of health care services by inner-city infants enrolled in an early discharge program who received care in a tertiary care children's hospital primary care clinic.

    Design

    Retrospective cohort study.

    Setting.

    Large, metropolitan university hospital and a children's hospital.

    Patients

    Term infants cared for in a single full-term nursery, before and after implementation of a coordinated early discharge program, who received primary care at the children's hospital.

    Intervention

    The coordinated Early Discharge Program was characterized by in-hospital visits by hospital-based coordinating nurses, home visits by nurses from a home nursing agency, and communication with physicians for necessary adjustments in postdischarge care.

    Methods

    After linking birth hospital records and the children's hospital medical records, a retrospective chart review was performed to obtain maternal demographic information and birth hospital length of stay, as well as the infants'attendance at primary care clinic, immunizations, emergency department visits, and rehospitalization.

    Main Outcome Measures

    Number of primary care visits in the first 3 months of life, completion of one series of immunizations by 3 months of life, and number of emergency department visits and rehospitalization during the first 3 months of life.
