With increasing emphasis on cost reduction and quality improvement, the transition to value-based care is underway. New models of health care delivery are being explored to optimize patient experience and outcomes while decreasing health care expenses. One such model is the specialty medical home (SMH), which provides multidisciplinary, high-quality care for chronic diseases with specialist involvement, such as inflammatory boweldisease (IBD). This review aims to explore the rationale behind initial construction, the critical personnel and components, the early outcomes of established models, comparison with other value-based care models, and the role of an IBD SMH in population health management.
