What is a Medical Home

A medical home is not a building, house or hospital, but rather an approach to providing health services in a high-quality and cost-effective manner. A medical home is defined as health care that includes:

* Provision of preventative care

* Assurance of ambulatory and inpatient care for acute illness 24 hours daily

* Provision of care over an extended period of time

* Identification of the need for subspecialty consultation and referrals

* Interaction with school and community agencies

* Maintenance of a central record and database with all pertinent medical information
