Interactive Care Model
Developed by researchers, reviewed by clinical experts and informed by feedback from clinicians and patients from several major health systems, the Interactive Care Model provides a roadmap to deliver care in a more person-centric, interprofessional way. The new model describes the interactions between providers and people in all care settings, and identifies five phases, or encounters, of interactive care.
