TEAM is a proven evidenced-based, adaptable, effective, economically sustainable, and telehealth-delivered Quality Improvement program that improves cardiovascular disease of all Veterans, particularly among underrepresented and underserved minorities, rural, and Women Veterans, through the use and adaptation of existing VA tools and resources. TEAM's implementation, adaptations, and linkages to effective VA resources achieves improved blood pressure control while simultaneously reducing barriers to care and increases Veteran engagement with the VA healthcare system. TEAM addresses critical gaps and considerations in translating research to practice and is considered a model program with successful implementation and outcomes in more than 16+ sites nationally that has now served over 900 Veterans. Recently, we have developed a specific track for women (TEAM-WV) to address heart disease risk unique to women.
