Health Care Home

Health care homes represent a significant redesign of health care in Minnesota. A “health care home,” also known as a “medical home,” is an approach to primary care in which providers, families, and patients work in partnership to improve health outcomes and quality of life for individuals, especially those with chronic health conditions and disabilities, and ultimately contain or reduce health care costs. MNAAP helped pioneer this concept Minnesota in 2003 through a series of learning collaboratives to define essential qualities of a health care home, which include increased access, increased communication, improved patient registry, improved care coordination, and improved performance reporting. Since then, MNAAP has helped more than 250 pediatricians become certified as health care home providers in Minnesota. It has also provided training and technical assistance to more than 1,300 physicians and clinic staff in Minnesota.
