Description

The medical home is a conceptual model of continuous and comprehensive care provision that is associated with improved outcomes for children with special healthcare needs. Most applications of the medical home have focused on improving primary care services. Despite concerted efforts to apply the medical home concept to the care of children with special healthcare needs, many barriers to its implementation still exist, in particular, for the subset of children with special healthcare needs who are medically complex. Applying the medical home concept to hospital-based care coordination may benefit both children with complex conditions and their families, as well as the community-based providers.
