In theory, assigning a medical home—accessible, continuous, comprehensive, family-centered, coordinated, compassionate and culturally effective healthcare—to every individual should pay off in more effective, patient-centric care. In practice, however, establishing medical homes can be time-consuming and challenging, especially for those with chronic conditions and in high-disparity and underserved populations.

This three-volume set, "Medical Home Compilation: Profiles on Pilots and Projects," illustrates how medical home projects and pilots are being used to improve primary care access and use. You'll get case studies on programs from APS Healthcare, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Community Care of North Carolina, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, the Pennsylvania Medicaid Access Program and United Healthcare.
