Patient-Aligned Care Teams (PACT)

PACT is a team-based model of care in which a team of health professionals, led by a provider, works collaboratively with the patient to provide for all of the patient's healthcare needs—or appropriately coordinates care with other qualified professionals. Issues being studied include methods of improving care coordination, how to automate point-of-care delivery, and point-of-care health literacy dissemination.

Search results were generated based on the search term "PACT". Results are updated weekly, as new data are available.
