A family-centered medical home is not a building. It is an approach to providing comprehensive primary care.

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 are met.

Through this partnership the pediatric care team can help the family/patient access, coordinate, and understand services that are important for the overall health of the child and family, including:

  • Specialty care
  • Educational services
  • Out-of-home care
  • Family support
  • Other public and private community services

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.
