The article presents the opposing views of American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) president Ted Epperly and American Enterprise Institute scholar Joseph Antos concerning medical homes. According to Epperly, medical homes establish relationships between the patients and their physicians and their medical team in which care is coordinated by the doctors. Antos states that medical homes may be great but several issues need to be settled such as the definition of such system.
