Clinical teams will include at least one prescribing clinician (MD, DO, PA, NP) and up to two other supporting staff that are in a position to develop new systems and processes to support care delivery. Other supporting staff could include a practice manager, quality improvement manager, behavioral health clinician, nurse care manager, pharmacist, or medical assistant.
