The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) first introduced the concept of the medical home in 1967.  Initially, the AAP defined the medical home as the “center” of a child’s medical records with the primary focus being the care of children with special health care needs.  Over time, the medical home definition evolved to reflect the changing needs of the health care system.
