Why Establish A Health Home?
Your health home team makes use of a shared medical record, which ensures your medical history, test results and current health status is well known and understood by each member of your health care team.
Coordination of services:
When you are sent to specialist doctors, specialized programs (such as Alberta Healthy Living) or community supports -- from the same health home -- your benefits include better communication, improved quality of care and no duplication of investigations and medications.
Planning and Organization:
Each member of your health home team contributes their knowledge and skills to help your doctor provide you and your family with the best care possible for current, ongoing and long-term health care needs.
Your active involvement determines just how successful your health care will be. By making sure the members of your health home team know everything about what you need, the treatment you've received and the medications you are taking, you will do your part in improving the safety of your care.
