Every Child Deserves a Medical Home
A medical home is a way of providing health care where parents and physicians partner to promote a child’s health and development. Overall, children receiving care within a medical home have improved health outcomes and families are more satisfied with their child’s care. In a medical home, care is coordinated based on the family’s priorities. The care is also accessible, continuous, comprehensive, compassionate and culturally effective.
The Wisconsin Medical Home Initiative promotes medical home concepts among primary care clinicians, public health departments, early childhood professionals and families throughout Wisconsin. We provide training, technical assistance and resources to support medical home implementation for all children, especially for those who have special health care needs.
The Wisconsin Medical Home Initiative is funded by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services’ Title V Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs Program and the Maternal Child Health Program located in the Division of Public Health.
