Patients Collaborating with Teams (PaCT) takes a proactive, systematic approach to enable patient to manage their care when they have, or are at risk for having, multiple chronic diseases or other complex health needs. PaCT takes the next step in the patient’s medical home by furthering the panel and chronic disease management work already underway in PCNs and primary care clinics.
Panel and Continuity
Continuity of care is about improving Albertans’ health though stronger ongoing relationships with their family physician or nurse practitioner and team, increased information sharing, and enhancing care coordination. The first step to improving continuity is identifying and maintaining a panel of unduplicated patients.
Patient Centred Interactions
and healthcare providers are partners that work together to achieve the
patient’s goals. This helps patients to better understand their health
condition or treatment, leading to increased shared decision-making and
confidence for self-management.
