Medical homes improve primary care delivery


Medical homes have emerged as a leading model for improving the quality and accessibility of health care. A medical home is not a physical location, but rather a comprehensive approach to primary care that emphasizes coordination of care and fosters a more collaborative physician-patient relationship.

Fee-for-service reimbursement has encouraged physicians to focus on the episodic treatment of disease. In contrast, a medical home takes a holistic, coordinated view of patient care, which results in healthier patients and a reduction in avoidable health care costs.
