Much of the medical home model is predicated on a relatively stable population that can access regular care at a single network of providers. So how can this model effectively transfer to a mobile population? One of the key elements needed is a more expansive vision of a medical home beyond a single geographic location. This session will explore strategies to create a patient centered medical home for patients on the move. The session will include an update and overview of MCN’s Health Network to manage critical health care issues such as infectious disease, Cancer, Diabetes and Pre-natal patient navigations. Participants will also be engaged in a discussion around best practices in tracking outcomes and reporting test results to patients. Presenters will highlight innovative promising practices in the creation of patient centered medical homes for migrant patients.
