Kaiser Permanente develops primary care team guide

September 13, 2018

Effective primary care practices are essential for optimizing patient outcomes, lowering costs and caring for patients with chronic conditions, such as diabetes. Moving toward a team-based model can seem like a daunting undertaking. The MacColl Center for Health Care Innovation at WSHA member Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute has developed the Primary Care Team Guide, with step-by-step direction for establishing this model.

Team-based care models typically consist of a core team that works together to share responsibility for specific groups of patients and maximizes the use of each team member’s unique skills and expertise. (Lisa Segerstrom)
