Primary Care is usually the entry point into health care for most patients. The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) has undertaken an initiative to implement a patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model at all VHA Primary Care sites which is referred to as Patient Aligned Care Teams (PACT). The PACT team puts the PATIENT in the center of his/her care. The care is PERSON-oriented as opposed to Service or Disease oriented. The person is just that: a PERSON, not a group of diseases to treat. The veteran is their own number one health care advocate with the support of VA PACT Team and Process on them. The veteran and their family get to make decisions and help direct their own care.
The PACT program mission is to deliver health care that is patient-centered, data-driven, continuously improving, and team-based. The goals, objectives, and processes evolve over time with the progression of the programs implementation, training, health care related technology, and capacity; but the veteran patient health care and family will always be first and the VA’s highest priority.
KCG provides consulting and training services to expand the skill sets of the PACT team members including doctors, nurses, and administrators. Our principles are centered around the PCMH model to increase efficiency and care simultaneously.
