Dr. Ciechanowski and the Samepage team are official trainers of University of Washington’s TEAMcare™ program that serves as a turnkey solution for Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH). TEAMcare is now used in over 30 sites in the U.S., Canada and India. This cost-effective program helps to empower patients and help them make lasting changes in health behaviors.
Dr. Ciechanowski was a co-investigator with the team that developed this program and their clinical trial has shown that TEAMcare leads to significant improvements in blood glucose, blood pressure, cholesterol and depression, with only one care manager per patient. Furthermore, this program has been shown to reduce costs, with savings of $600 to $1100 per patient over two years.
