Family Health Teams are an important part of changing both the health care system and the way people think about health care. Family Health Teams focus more on preventing illness and promoting health. The teams look at the best ways of managing chronic illnesses such as diabetes and depression. In doing so they are able to provide care that is more accessible and comprehensive and gives patients the opportunity to be more involved in making decisions about their own health.
