Slide notes:The patient medical home model is a primary care approach to patient-centered, comprehensive, team-based, coordinated, and accessible care [quote] focused on quality and safety. It has become a widely accepted model for how primary care should be organized and delivered throughout the health care system and encourages providers and care teams to meet patients where they are. The medical home is not a final destination; instead, it is a model for achieving primary care excellence so that care is received in the right place, at the right time, and in the manner that best suits a patients needs [end quote]. Benefits of this model include improved patient care quality and safety as well as a tight integration of the patient and family with the providers and care activities and decisions. 13
