About Medical Home | For Providers | For Youth & Families
A medical home is an approach to providing primary care that is accessible, continuous, comprehensive, family-centered, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective. In a medical home, the primary care team develops a trusting relationship with the family and works as a partner to assure that all of the child’s needs are met. Through its medical home initiatives, ICAAP works with individual physicians, primary care practices, and community and state agencies to support the dissemination and implementation of the medical home model, with a focus on improving services for children with special health care needs.
Resources include policy statements, background information and evidence for medical home as well as tools and articles related to coordinated care, comprehensive care, and many more.
