Population Health Management: Team-Based Care
Team-Based Care (also called Expanded Care Teams) is when a team of medical and community health professionals work together to provide care. When the right mix of experts can work with the right tools to deliver “whole patient care” to de ned groups of patients, health outcomes and patient satisfaction improves. It is also a critical tool for clinician recruitment and retention.
Health centers are using Expanded Care Teams as one Population Health Management (PHM) strategy to achieve the “Quadruple Aim” — improved patient experiences, improved clinical outcomes and lowered costs while also improving the work life of health care providers.
