Title

A Social Compact For Advancing Team-Based High-Value Health Care

Abstract

In this post, we put forth a social compact intended to define the reciprocal obligations of health care professionals, patients and society that are necessary to achieve truly patient-centered, team-based care. The compact and recommendations were developed from a working group formed at the March 2010 invitational conference co-sponsored by the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation (ABIMF) and the American Academy of Nursing (AAN). These groups and the conference invitees represent constituencies crucial to implementing team-based care. The recommended compact moves beyond most of the writings about team-based care by the explicit inclusion of principles related to the patient and family as central members of the team.
