Petersen, D. J., Bronstein, J., & Pass, M. A. (2002). Assessing the extent of medical home coverage among Medicaid-enrolled children. Maternal and Child Health Journal, 6(1), 59–66. Access Abstract

NPM: 11: Medical Home
Intervention Components (click on component to see a list of all articles that use that intervention): PROVIDER/PRACTICE, Patient-Centered Medical Home, Continuity of Care (Caseload), PATIENT/CONSUMER, Enabling Services
Intervention Description: In light of the transition of the Alabama Medicaid program to a primary care case management model, we assessed the level to which children had access to a medical home before and after implementation of that model.
Conclusion: State Maternal and Child Health programs are required to report as a performance measure “the percent of children with special health care needs in the state who have a medical/health home” as part of their Block Grant application. Using Medicaid data, this simple measurement strategy can provide an indication of the extent to which at least one population of children receive care through a medical home.
Study Design: Quasi-experimental: Pretestposttest
Setting: Alabama Medicaid-financed primary care
Target Audience: Children with Medicaid in 26 counties
Data Source: Medicaid administrative/claims data
Sample Size: n=60752 (enrolled during baseline); n=64789 (enrolled during postimplementation period)
Age Range: Not specified
