A “medical home” is a medical office or clinic where a team of health professionals work together to provide a new, expanded type of care to patients using modern knowledge and technology, to provide the best possible care for you in their office.

Who is Part of the Medical Home Care Team?

The medical home team includes a doctor, nurse practitioner, nurse, care manager, as well as other health care professionals like a pharmacist or social worker.
