Medical Home Portal Frequently Asked Questions Survey

The Medical Home Portal is again working with trainees in the Utah Regional Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and related Disabilities (URLEND) program. This year’s project will focus on adding Frequently Asked Questions (and answers) about the diagnoses and conditions on the Portal. We need your help! What questions about specific chronic conditions have you had or been asked by patients or their families that others are likely to have or be asked? Please tell us by visiting the Medical Home Portal FAQ Survey. You may provide as few or as many questions as you like. We’ll work with experts in each area to find answers and post the common questions and answers in the FAQ sections. This survey will be available on an on-going basis; come back anytime.
