Last week's HEALTHCARE DESIGN poll question asked:

As outlined in a recent blog post, are you familiar with the concept of the medical home?

12.50% - Yes, my firm has been working on such facilities for years

37.50% - Yes, it’s recently come onto my firm's radar

50.00% - No, I have never heard of the concept


- I have personally understood "medical home" to be a place where an individuals medical records (electronic) are based, regardless of who provides service or where it is provided. The understanding was that this entity would also coordinate care.
