The Medical Home is collected to satisfy United Way funding requirements and is collected for all housing projects within the Cincinnati/Hamilton County CoC. Medical home refers to the place where a client receives primary care, coordination of health care, and/or medical advocacy. This field can be found in Clarity Client Program Enrollment and Exit screens: "Medical Home."

If the client has a medical home, toggle on the button next to "The client has a medical home." If known, fill in the rest of the information with the medical home's information: Name, address, etc. Complete the rest of the enrollment normally. 

More information about the Medical Home model can be found at the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services website:
