Medical Home

Overview

Healthcare delivered through a medical home is accessible, patient-centered, personalized, continuous, comprehensive, coordinated, compassionate and culturally responsive. A medical home team includes patients as active participants in their own health and well-being, and all of their care providers (doctors, dentists, therapists, etc.) who collaborate with each other. One of the team's professionals takes the lead in coordinating the patient's care.

In a successful medical home, every issue faced by an individual, such as medical, dental, vision, educational, psychological and developmental, are identified and addressed. The goal is to ensure individuals have access to the healthcare and other resources they may require.
