Team-Based Care: Do What You Do Best
Family medicine practices across the country are shifting to team-based care in an effort to improve the patient-physician relationship, increase efficiency, and support physician and staff well-being. Team-based care accomplishes these goals by more appropriately distributing the workload and capitalizing on team members’ strengths to maximize their contributions.
“All members of the team play a very important role, working at the top of their license,” says Marie Brown, MD, senior physician adviser to the American Medical Association (AMA) on professional satisfaction and practice sustainability. “The entire team shares the responsibility to provide the best patient care.”
