What Is a Family-Centered Medical Home?
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, a medical home is an accessible, continuous, comprehensive, family-centered, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective place of care.
This means that our clinic, as your child’s medical home, is a central resource for all your child’s health care needs. In a medical home, your child’s physician, nurse practitioner, and staff should make you feel like you are the most important part of the health care team. You are encouraged to participate in all aspects of your child’s care.
As your child’s medical home, we will help you find the needed information and resources about:
- Pediatric subspecialists
- Health conditions and latest treatments
- Home care, equipment, and medical suppliers
- Support and respite services for your family
- Other key local services
As your medical home we will:
- Take care of your child when he or she is sick and we’ll help you keep your child well.
- Help you plan your child’s health care and/or set goals for current and future care.
- Talk with you about any testing or treatment that your child needs.
- Work with you and other care providers to coordinate your child’s care
Your Child’s Visit
Here are a few helpful tips that will help you prepare for your child’s visit to our providers:
- Be prepared to share how your child is doing (at play, school, sleep, etc.).
- Write down and bring any questions or concerns.
- Bring a list of other providers your child sees and their contact information.
- Create and share a complete record of your child’s care.
- Bring a list of your child’s medications to each visit. We must know all of your child's prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, and vitamins or remedies.
Access and Communication
The Pediatric Primary Care Clinic is available when you need us most. Please ask about any special communication or access needs that you or your children have. We have policies with your needs in mind.
