EHDI and the Medical Home: Jack Levine, New York AAP Chapter Champion of EHDI, Rachel St. John and Janet DesGeorges
  A medical home is a concept of pediatric primary care to every child that is accessible, continuous, comprehensive, family-centered, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective. Medical homes address preventative, acute, and chronic care from birth through transition to adulthood. It is a model of health care delivery that is especially effective for children with special health care needs. Care coordination, family education and collaboration with community agencies is at the heart of the medical home. This program will discuss how medical home concepts and practices apply to early EHDI programs and can help to reduce lost to follow-up and documentation, provide critical family support and needed case management. Physicians, parents, audiologists, EHDI coordinators and others will benefit from listening to experts in the field discuss the benefits, barriers and challenges with the medical home as well as discuss the latest efforts to integrate the medical home into the EHDI process.
