In the medical home model, a primary care practice coordinates all health care services for children and families in a specific community. The primary care practice needs to continually receive up-to-date information about the health care utilization of its patients to successfully perform this role. Medical Home Network helps make this possible through an innovative web-based portal.
Care coordination is a cornerstone of the medical home concept. Solutions that enhance care coordination will become increasingly important as the Illinois Medicaid population is expected to grow to 1 in 4 people of the total population by 2014. The provider partnerships brought together by Medical Home Network reflect a shared commitment to improve the health status of residents and reduce health care costs for vulnerable populations in the region.
