In a landmark 2010 report, the World Health Organization (WHO) said the global health care workforce crisis requires greater interprofessional collaboration. Not only does the model enhance patient outcomes, but it also increases access to care and reduces costs.

More recent studies have confirmed the report's assessment of the effectiveness of team-based care, and also evaluated educational efforts. Case Western Reserve and other institutions have contributed significantly to this growing body of knowledge.
