PACT (Patient Aligned Care Team) Space Module  


The PACT (Patient Aligned Care Team) Space Module Design Guide represents a significant change in VA’s approach to the environment of care for the delivery of Primary Care Services to our Nation’s Veterans. VA’s transformation of care to PACT, a Veteran-centric, medical home model of care, required a new space planning and design paradigm. The PACT Space Module Design Guide is an extremely important addition to the series of Design Guides produced by the Office of Construction and Facilities Management (CFM) in support of the planning and design of healthcare facilities for the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.

This Design Guide formalizes conceptual planning and design information that has been gathered during the past three years through extensive collaboration, among VHA Central Office, VISN Leadership, and CFM, augmented with countless hours of meeting and consultation with clinical staff and frontline leadership in the field. This effort was also supplemented with lengthy interaction with private sector healthcare providers and site tours of their facilities. Those providers have undergone a similar transformation and have implemented facility solutions to support their version of the medical home care delivery model.
