As your medical home, we work in partnership with you to make sure that your family’s needs are met and to develop a self-care plan that will help you to stay involved in your child’s care between office visits.
At right are links to resources where you will find valuable information for helping to self-manage your child’s condition, and files that you can print out and use at home.
In a family-centered medical home, the pediatric care team works in partnership with a child and a child’s family to assure that all of the medical and non-medical needs of the patient are met.
Your Pediatric Care Team
Through this partnership, the pediatric care team can help the family/patient access, coordinate, and understand specialty care, educational services, out-of-home care, family support, and other public and private community services that are important for the overall health of the child and family.
Delivering Primary Care
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) developed the medical home model for delivering primary care that is accessible, continuous, comprehensive, family-centered, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective to all children and youth, including children and youth with special health care needs.
