Share this:


An article in JAMA concludes:

Among high-risk children with chronic illness, an enhanced medical home that provided comprehensive care to promote prompt effective care vs usual care reduced serious illnesses and costs.”

The aim of the study was to find out “whether an enhanced medical home providing comprehensive care prevents serious illness (death, intensive care unit [ICU] admission, or hospital stay >7 days) and/or reduces costs among children with chronic illness.”

The study’s authors had noted that regular “Patient-centered medical homes have not been shown to reduce adverse outcomes or costs in adults or children with chronic illness.”
