Medical home concept for kids is a TERRIFIC concept! This means having one Pediatrician/office for a child where her all medical needs are served. This includes all well checkups, shots, sports physicals and treatment of all acute illnesses (Eg. ear infections) and chronic problems like Asthma, ADHD. In a medical home, patients and parents feel respected. Staffers take a proactive approach to helping families.
Recent research has suggested that children who develop a long-term relationship with a pediatrician are healthier and hospitalized less than children who switch off between several doctors' offices, the urgent clinics and the health department. The fragmented care approach to a child's health means no single doctor knows you and your child well. Nobody knows the bigger picture.
