Since 2010, VHA has been implementing the Patient Aligned Care Teams (PACT) model as the standard of care for delivering primary care services. Implementation of the underlying patient-centered medical home model requires fundamental change in the organization of care, with the primary work unit moving from individual providers to interdisciplinary teams. During this transition we have worked as part of the PACT Demonstration Laboratory Initiative to conduct a multi-faceted, mixed-methods formative evaluation of implementation. Our underlying objective, as with any project applying implementation science, has been to inform successful and sustainable adoption of evidence-based practice into everyday care delivery.
