With a focus on value-based health care, MedAxiom’s consultants are helping articulate and implement the benefits of care teams to CV programs across the country. In this just-released article in Cardiac Interventions Today magazine, Ginger Biesbrock, PA-C, MPH, MPAS, AACC, and Anne Beekman, RN, write that “a care team approach will provide a more efficient care delivery model, maximize resources and facilities, and should facilitate continuous quality.”

According to Ginger and Anne, the Keys to Success for a Team-Based Care Approach include:

  • A culture that engages physicians to participate and collaborate. Physician leadership is integral.
  • Utilization of evidence-based scientific guidelines as the basis for clinical protocols/pathways.
  • Adopt best practices as standard work, train teams to create expertise, and establish metrics for performance management.
  • Develop a team based on needed skillsets where all members work to the top of their licensure.
