Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) is a national advanced primary care medical home model that aims to strengthen primary care through regionally-based multi-payer payment reform and care delivery transformation. The use of team-based care features uniquely skilled individuals working together, in new ways, to meet the health care needs of patients in an efficient, comprehensive, and sustainable manner. Successful population management relies on a high-functioning team that shares a firm vision of a healthier patient who is empowered to better manage his or her own health, with the help of the Care Team. These physician-led teams are aware of the patient’s medical and social history, and are equipped to attend to patient needs in a variety of ways. Team-based health care is one of the key ways to accomplish shared goals within and across our medical centers to achieve coordinated, high-quality care and reach our mission to create a healthier Hawai'i.
