Veterans Health Administration (VHA) Patient-Aligned Care Teams (PACT)

The VHA is redesigning primary care around the Patient Centered Medical Home, a patient-driven, team-based approach that delivers efficient, comprehensive, and continuous care through active communication and coordination of healthcare services.  Dr. Reddy is studying and evaluating the impact of interpersonal continuity of care and team-based care on healthcare utilization and outcomes for high-risk patients.

The goals of this work are to develop and test new care models to advance primary care delivery, particularly mechanisms to encourage more comprehensiveness in primary care delivery; to improve the care of complex patients; to facilitate robust connections to the medical neighborhood and community-based services; and to move reimbursement from encounter-based toward value-driven, population-based care.
