In today’s era of accountable care, health homes represent an innovative way to deliver quality care and improve outcomes. A health home is a provider or a team of health care professionals responsible for coordinating integrated health care across multiple providers. Each healthcare professional participating in the health home shares their relevant information about a consumer and coordinates treatment based on all providers’ collective information. A health home is a virtual construct to coordinate care for a client regardless of where they receive that care.
This White Paper "Health Homes in the Era of Accountable Care" educates health and human services organizations about the emergence of health homes, how they transform care delivery and how providers can prepare for health homes participation.
