Medical Home Toolkit
A medical home is not a building, house, hospital, or home healthcare service, but rather a family-centered 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 of the patient are met.
Texas Parent to Parent’s Medical Home Toolkit explains what a medical home is, how to get one, and is free and available for download (PDF) in its entirety (zip file) or by individual document (each in PDF):
