A Health Care Home is an approach to primary care in which primary care providers, families and patients work in partnership to improve health outcomes and quality of life for individuals with chronic or complex health conditions.
The development of Health Care Homes in Minnesota is driven by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Triple Aim, an initiative to simultaneously achieve the following goals:
· Improve the individual experience of care.
· Improve the health of the population.
· Improve affordability by containing the per capita cost of providing care.
