Medical Practices

“The chapter’s Medical Home Initiative, under the direction of Medical Director Renee Turchi, MD, MPH (co-author of the Patient- and Family-Centered Care Coordination policy statement), works hand-in-hand with practices across the commonwealth to train their staff on the principles of care coordination. By offering in-person technical assistance to practices, the MHI practice coordinators are able to help practices implement care coordination. In addition to the in-office training, there are also webinars, regional learning collaboratives, and state-wide CME conferences to enhance the efforts of the practice. Practices are also eligible to apply for a care coordination mini-grant, which will help them fund their efforts.

The goal of the PA Medical Home Initiative is to provide CYSHCN with health care services that are accessible, family-centered, continuous, comprehensive, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally-competent. In a Medical Home, health professionals and families work as a team to access all medical and non-medical services necessary to help children reach their full potential. There is always room for more practices to get involved in the program. If you are interested in finding out more about the Medical Home Initiative, please reach out to us via the "Contact Us" tab!
