Definition of Patient-Centered Team-Based Care

Patient-centered team-based health care in Wisconsin supports the definition originally developed by Naylor, Coburn, and Kurtzman (n.d.) and adopted by the U.S. Institute of Medicine:

Team-based health care is the provision of health services to individuals, families, and/or their communities by at least two heath providers who work collaboratively with patients and their care givers – to the extent preferred by each patient – to accomplish shared goals within and across settings to achieve coordinated high-quality care (in Mitchell et al., 2012, p. 5).
