The Care Transformation Collaborative of Rhode Island (CTC), a patient-centered medical home initiative managed by UMass Medical School, explains how primary care practices can build a medical neighborhood by creating a community health team to provide behavioral health and social support services to patients with high-cost, complex care needs. CTC used a multi-payer approach to pilot and evaluate two community health teams in two diverse areas of Rhode Island.
