The Pediatric Medical Home Program at UCLA is designated to provide care to our pediatric patients with special health care needs that is accessible, family centered, coordinated, compassionate and delivered in a culturally effective manner.
Established in 2003, our program is based at the Pediatric Resident Continuity Clinic at the UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital.
Patients enrolled in the program receive their primary care and majority of specialty care at UCLA.
Our research indicates that access to the program results in:
- Improved health, developmental, educational, psychosocial and functional outcomes
- Reduced emergency room visits
- Better communication between families and pediatric health professionals
- Increased patient and family satisfaction
