Establish a Medical Home
Do you have a primary care physician who coordinates your medical care? If you do, this might be your medical home. A medical home is an approach to providing comprehensive care that recenters health care on a patient's needs and priorities. Medical homes have been shown to improve health outcomes, reduce costs, and improve patient, family, physician, and staff satisfaction. For more information, go to the Citizens Health Initiative's Medical Home Project. The Citizens Health Initiative, in collaboration with Pfizer, Inc., developed two mini-documentaries about what it is like to be part of a medical home.
