Medical Home

This is not a building, house, or hospital, but a team approach to providing health care. The basic premise of the concept is that care managed and coordinated by a personal physician in collaboration with the patient or family members of children and youth with special health care needs will lead to better outcomes. The medical home maintains a centralized record of all health related services to promote continuity of care, and coordinates care amongst team members, including the patient, family members, primary health care practitioners, specialist, community programs, and insurance.
