Your Advance Care Team (ACT)


The Advance Care Team (ACT) Model provides a population health management approach when it comes to caring for patients (Nguyen, 2017). The ACT does this... "by delivering and ensuring comprehensive, person-centered care management, multidisciplinary team-based care; concurrent curative and palliative treatment; care coordination across all care providers and settings; comprehensive advance care planning; shared decision making with patient, family, and providers; and 24/7 access to clinical support" (Nguyen, 2017).
