A Medical home is a team approach to providing total health care. Your medical home team will include your health care provider and their healthcare team, others who support you, and, most importantly, YOU.
Your Medical Home Can
- Encourage you to play an active part in your own health care
- Help you manage your health care
- Help answer your health questions
- Listen to your concerns
- Work with other medical experts if necessary
- Coordinate your care through additional services
In a medical home, you and your team will work together. As an active member of the team, you will have a chance to explain the things that are really important to you.
You are the most important person on the health care team. Patient-centered is a way of saying that you are the focus of your health care. You can help with the success of your medical home by being an active team player, taking care of your health, and talking openly with your team.
