Patient-Centered Team-Based Care Model
Team: Core Element #1
The team functions as a microsystem of the parent organization. The team is prepared, proactive, and strives to achieve a high-functionality through knowledge, skills, and attitudes. The team owns and exemplifies a set of adopted team-based principles, processes, and actions. Each patient (family & support system) has a relationship with a team prepared to provide first contact, continuous, and comprehensive care.
