A Health Home is a care management service model where all of an individual's providers communicate with one another so the patient's needs are addressed in a comprehensive manner. This is done primarily through a care manager. Health records are shared among providers so that services are not duplicated or neglected. Health Home services are provided through a network of organizations - providers, health plans and community-based organizations. When all the services are considered collectively they become a virtual Health Home.
