One Family's Journey: Medical Home and the network of supports it offers children and youth with special health care needs
Feeling overwhelmed by the number of choices, Amita and Samir decided to purchase a baby monitor, a beautiful crib blanket, a stroller, a car seat, nursing pads, and a package of diapers (size 1). Doris patted Amita's hand and explained that a Medical Home isn't a place, but rather a comprehensive approach to medical care for children with special healthcare needs. Dr. Robinson and Doris were there along with a social worker, a member of the hospital business office, two medical students, one pediatric resident, a lactation consultant, a respiratory therapist, and the discharge coordinator.
