Nationwide, primary care practices are finding that creating more effective practice teams is the key to becoming a patient-centered medical home, improving patients’ health, and increasing productivity. The Improving Primary Care Team Guide ("Team Guide") is an online resource for primary care practices that:

  • Provides hands-on tools and resources that are actionable and measureable,
  • Is appropriate for practices at any stage of development, and
  • Includes modules that enable practices to easily pinpoint relevant topics and areas of interest.

For the last three years, with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the PCT-LEAP team has identified, studied, and engaged with 31 high-performing primary care practices around the United States to develop the lessons contained in the Team Guide.  Visits to these sites found extensive involvement of all staff, especially medical assistants and trained lay persons, in key patient care roles such as health coaching, care coordination, or telephone follow-up.

The Team Guide presents practical advice, case studies, and tools from these exemplar practices that have markedly improved care, efficiency, and job satisfaction by transforming to a team-based approach.
