My Introduction to TCOM

Rebekka Schaffer, Project Assistant at Chapin Hall I joined the TCOM Team here at Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago at the start of July 2018.

How TCOM takes Person-Centered Care to Scale

Person-centered care is a strategy of providing health care that views the people using health and social services as equal partners in the entire process of planning, developing and monitoring care to ensure that the care meets their needs.   The idea that health care should be focused on the person is not new.  A considerable number of prior initiatives over the past decades have had a similar focus.  All of them sound appealing.  The very idea that health care should be about anything other than the health care needs of the individual… Read More
