What is GeriPACT?

Geriatric Patient Aligned Care Teams (GeriPACT) are Patient Aligned Care Teams (PACTs) that specialize in providing care for older and chronically ill Veterans who have complicated health problems that are made even more challenging by social factors.  Their needs therefore cannot be addressed in the primary care clinic staff (PACT) alone.

GeriPACTs include health care providers from a variety of disciplines. The team is usually led by a GeriPACT provider such as a physician (MD or DO), physician assistant (PA), nurse practitioner (NP), or clinical pharmacist. Other team members include nurses, social workers, pharmacists and mental health providers.  Dieticians, rehabilitation professionals, and chaplains may become involved as well.
