Collaborative medical treatment is, as the name suggests, a medical treatment approach that involves the integration of health care providers from multiple fields to evaluate and to treat the patient not only at physical level, but from an emotional and social point of view as well. The process consists of an evaluation of the physical and pathological aspects as well as the patient’s mental condition and it often involves the patient’s family members as well.
Collaborative care practically consists of a treatment plan developed as a result of collaboration of multiple health care specialists coming from different fields. The process involves the collaboration of health care specialists as well as the collaboration and communication between health care specialists and the patient’s family, the goal being to arrive at a more complex, wider-angle picture of the patient as a whole, as a complex being and the elaboration of the most suitable treatment plan.
The collaborative approach to treatment has proved to be much more efficient than the traditional approach of performing medical investigations and developing treatment plans by individual specialists. Collaboration allows for better treatment plans and it reduces the risk of errors, such as medicine duplications or the use of outdated medical information for evaluating treatment options.
