A "medical home" is a medical office or clinic where a team of health professionals work together to provide a new, expanded type of care to patients. Having a medical home feels like having a family doctor, but with a team of professionals, using modern knowledge and technology, to provide you the patient with the best possible care in the office.


In a medical home your care team:

  • Is available 24/7 if you need them. You can communicate with your care team by phone or email, and you can get an appointment quickly, even on the same day when needed.
  • You care team knows you and remembers your health history. They know enough about your personal or family situation to suggest treatment options that make sense for you.
  • Your care teams makes you understand your condition(s) and how to take care of yourself. They help you sort through your options and make decisions about your care.
  • Finally, your care team helps you coordinate your health care - even if they are not giving the care themselves. They will help you find your specialists, get appointments, and make sure your specialists have all the information they need. Your medical home team will also be sure you know what the specialists say and what it means for you.
