C-TAC and AHIP Foundation Announce Initial Report on Clinical Recommendations for the Advanced Care Project
June 18, 2015 – The Coalition to Transform Advanced Care (C-TAC) and the AHIP Foundation are excited to release the findings of the clinical phase of the Advanced Care Project. This Report provides a framework of clinical best practices to guide the development of effective care models for those living with advanced illness. The Project findings reflect the combined expertise of more than 20 geographically diverse health plans and health systems, a broad range of clinicians, and insights from people living with advanced illness and their families.
The Advanced Care Project is a national collaboration among health plans, health systems, a range of clinicians and related organizations, community-based groups, and other stakeholders to identify, analyze and implement best practice clinical care models to improve care for patients and families living with advanced illness. Major goals of the project include encouraging the spread of person-centered care models based on evidence, continued assessment, and scale and replication.
