Evaluating Medical Homes in New Orleans: A Survey of Patients, Phase 1


More than two years after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, many New Orleans residents are uninsured, in poor health, and without a regular source of care. To stabilize and strengthen primary care in the New Orleans area, the federal government awarded Louisiana a $100 million grant for the restoration and transformation of neighborhood primary care clinics into medical homes. This project will survey clinic patients and neighborhood residents about the accessibility and coordination of care to help determine whether this investment is increasing access and improving quality. The results will be compared with those of the Kaiser Family Foundation's population survey of New Orleans, as well as findings from a future Fund-supported survey of clinic directors that will seek information about the development of medical homes at the clinic and community level.
