The patient/family is the focal point of this model, and Medical Home is built around this center. Medical Home also is a base from which care services are coordinated to provide the most cost effective and efficient care to the patient.

This includes:

  • The use of advanced health technology
  • The coordination of specialty care and inpatient care
  • Providing preventive services through:
    • health promotion
    • disease management and prevention
    • health maintenance
    • behavioral health services
    • patient education
    • diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illness

In short, it’s likely a model for how healthcare providers in the future will get out ahead of the rising healthcare cost curve by working with patients to achieve better outcomes.
