Medical Home Models for Specialty Care

Medical Home Models for Specialty Care Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Use of the patient-centered medical home model in primary care settings can improve quality, reduce costs, and increase accessibility of health care. Providers are now applying principles of the medical home to the delivery of specialty care in an effort to provide comprehensive, coordinated care and improve health outcomes.

The featured Innovations examine how three different providers adapted the primary care medical home model to specialty care, including a community-based oncology practice that redesigned its care delivery processes, a pediatric center serving children with special health care needs, and a statewide medical home program that improved access to comprehensive pregnancy care for Medicaid beneficiaries.

The featured QualityTools provide resources to support the integration of the patient-centered medical home model into specialty care.
