Slide notes:This lecture will discuss the patient-centered medical home. The patient-centered medical home is a model of providing primary care that is comprehensive and takes into account the needs of the patient, as well as the clinician. The concept has been around for many years. In 1967, the American Academy of Pediatrics, or AAP, initially introduced the medical home concept as a central location to archive a childs medical records. By 2002, the AAP expanded the medical home concept to include specific characteristics of patient care - that patient care should be accessible, continuous, comprehensive, family-centered, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective. 3
