Medical Home Project (MHP)
The Medical Home Project is committed to improving the quality of health care for individuals with disabilities by educating medical personnel about patient-centered care, respectful communication and effective coordination of community-based resources.
The Medical Home Project, Lehigh Valley Health Network of Family Medicine, will integrate its model program of patient-centered care into all medical practices in the Lehigh Valley. All persons involved in health care for individuals with disabilities will be educated on ways to provide care that is accessible, continuous, comprehensive, patient-centered, coordinated, compassionate and culturally competent.
Pennsylvania Patients with Disabilities as Trainers Program (PA P-DAT) is an educational resource with administrative and evaluation tools and resources that empowers parent and patient partners to teach medical students, residents and primary care office staff about disability etiquette through sharing their own experiences within the healthcare system.
