All children should receive care within a “medical home;” that is, comprehensive primary care that facilitates partnerships between patients, clinicians, medical staff, and families. This portal, sponsored by the CAHMI and the National Center for Medical Home Implementation (a cooperative agreement between the Maternal and Child Health Bureau and the American Academy of Pediatrics), is designed to allow state and family leaders quick access to data on how children in each state experience receiving care within a medical home.

The medical home measure uses standardized national survey data to assess whether children and youth have a personal doctor or nurse, have a usual source of care, receive needed referrals, receive help coordinating care across multiple provider, and receive care that is family-centered and culturally-sensitive.

The Well-Visit Planner (WVP) is a tool designed by the CAHMI to assist parents in preparing for their young child's (age 0-6 years) well-child check-ups so that they can get the most out of the visit by thinking ahead of time about their questions, concerns, and priorities. Given that one of the sub-components of a medical home is having family-centered care, this is an important tool with many helpful possibilities.
