Minnesota family physicians believe everyone should have a medical home. Better for Minnesota healthcare – Better for Minnesotans.

What is a Medical Home?
A medical home is not an actual concrete structure like a house or building. Instead, it’s an approach to providing primary healthcare to patients. 

Having a medical home means:

  • You have a relationship with a doctor or group of doctors who know you and your family
  • You rely on a clinic or clinic system to coordinate all of your medical care in a timely manner – from regular check-ups to specialized treatment
  • Your clinic utilizes health information technology so that your records are accurate and easily accessible to all of those involved with your care
  • Your care is comprehensive and considers the “big picture”
  • Your care is consistent with your needs and values

Benefits of a medical home:

  • Improves health and provides better patient outcomes
  • Lowers the overall cost of services within the healthcare system as a whole
  • Provides patients seamless and timely access to care
  • Allows for trusting relationships between patients and doctors
  • Greater satisfaction for patients and physicians
  • Care that fits a patient’s personal values
