The Medical Home - Patient Centered Primary Care

The Medical Home - Patient Centered Primary Care: " The Patient-Centered Medical Home ('medical home') is a model of care that puts the needs of the patient first. The medical home is the base from which health care services are coordinated to provide the most effective and efficient care to the patient. This includes the use of health information technology, the coordination of specialty and inpatient care, providing preventive services through health promotion, disease management and prevention, health maintenance, behavioral health services, patient education, and diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses."

This makes so much sense ! In the past , doctors would make home visits It's high time we made clever use of technology to offer a similar "high-tech" version for today's world.
