Patients Collaborating with Teams takes a proactive approach to enable patients to manage their care when they have, or are at risk for having, multiple chronic diseases or other complex health needs. PaCT takes the next step in the Patient's Medical Home by furthering the panel and chronic disease management work already underway in PCNs and primary care clinics.
PaCT is a joint initiative planned with patient representatives and the following partners to assist PCNs in support of practice groups:
- Alberta Medical Association
- Alberta Health Services
- Health Quality Council of Alberta
- Alberta Cancer Prevention Legacy Fund

In October 2017, PaCT launched with a coaches and all-team training day. Through the course of the year, participants will be part of an Innovation Community where they will receive tools and resources to test in their setting and be able to connect with others working to improve their care planning process for patients with complex health needs.
