Live Quality, access, and cost: Improving health care through physician-led interprofessional care teams
From patient-centered medical homes to some of the nation’s largest integrated health care systems, physician-led interprofessional team-based health care has proven to be a successful model in the delivery of high-value health care. Successful interprofessional care teams are characterized by strong physician leadership, effective communication, and the full and efficient use of the expertise and knowledge of each team member. This program will identify the impetus for inteprofessional team-based health care and how this delivery model can help to improve the quality of care while increasing access and reducing cost. It will also examine how successful interprofessional teams are structured and how they function on a day-to-day basis. Finally, the program will identify and discuss the leadership qualities physicians must possess in order to effectively lead interprofessional care teams.
