ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the better care and cost savings that team-based health care offers. Team models from health care providers that share the same goal but works differently are discussed such as AtlantiCare's primary care for the chronically ill, Brigham & Women's Hospital's inpatient care, and the team-based model of care of ThedaCare Center for Healthcare Value. A collaborative interprofessional training that seeks to undo traditional training is suggested for team-based care.
