WHY:   Many changes are needed to reach the goal of health care that meets patients’ medical, social, emotional, and behavioral health needs and improves health outcomes. One of the most challenging, and promising, is the transition to team-based delivery of care. Though it has the potential to improve efficiency, effectiveness, value, outcomes, and patient and provider satisfaction, true team-based care still faces many challenges.
