Building Medical Home Neighborhoods through Community-Based Teams: Lessons from Three States with Emerging Programs

Community-based teams can help medical home providers offer primary care that is coordinated, whole-person oriented, and integrated with local community resources.  Nine states are now making payments to community-based practice support teams, and others are exploring possibilities for launching teams in the near future.  Webcast attendees will hear from program leaders in Alabama, Michigan, and Minnesota about why they are enhancing their medical home programs with community-based teams.  The speakers will also discuss program financing and how teams can help link medical homes to medical neighborhoods, especially to care for complex Medicaid enrollees.
