Slide notes:The patient-centered medical home mandates coordination of care. Coordinated or integrated care is provided to the patient across all elements of the health care system and within the patients community. Care is facilitated by technology so that patients get appropriate care when and where they need it. Clinicians are trained to provide care that is culturally and linguistically appropriate. In this setting, the health care system includes subspecialty care, hospitals, home health agencies, or nursing homes. The patients community includes family, public, or private community-based services; and the concept of technology includes electronic health records, health information exchanges, information technology registries, and other means to provide appropriate care. 8
