Access to quality care within a medical home is an important component of children’s health and well-being. Knowing the experience of children within your state is important to improving the quality of care.

There are many ways to measure the concept of “medical home.” Some are based on characteristics of the practice and the health care delivery system. Others are based on the receipt of services which mirror the components of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ statement on the provision of care. The National Survey of Children’s Health and the National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs contain specific items, based on the AAP guidelines for medical home care, designed to capture the medical home experience of children and their families. Therefore, the measures included in these surveys provide a key quality indicator about how families experience care as they navigate the health system. The measurement of medical home in the NSCH and the NS-CSHCN are based on multiple items, all of which are critical to the experience of care.
