Riley, M., Laurie, A. R., Plegue, M. A., & Richardson, C. R. (2016). The adolescent “expanded medical home”: School-based health centers partner with a primary clinic to improve population health and mitigate social determinants of health. Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine, 29(3), 339–347. Access Abstract

NPM: 11: Medical Home
Intervention Components (click on component to see a list of all articles that use that intervention): SCHOOL, School-Based Health Centers, PROVIDER/PRACTICE, Patient-Centered Medical Home, Nurse/Nurse Practitioner, PATIENT/CONSUMER, Referrals, Peer Counselor
Intervention Description: We describe the implementation of an "expanded medical home" partnering a primary care practice (the Ypsilanti Health Center [YHC]) with local school-based health centers (the Regional Alliance for Healthy Schools [RAHS]), and to assess whether this model improves access to and quality of care for shared patients.
Conclusion: Thoughtful and intentional implementation of an expanded medical home partnership between primary care physicians and school-based health centers increases the number of shared high-risk adolescent patients. Shared patients have improved compliance with quality measures, which may lead to long-term improved health equity.
