eventEventThis type of team focuses on one specific type of incident, which is non-patient specific. The incident is determined by the context of use. For example, code team (code red, code blue, medical emergency treatment) or the PICC line team.
encounterEncounterThis type of team focuses on one specific encounter. The encounter is determined by the context of use. For example, during an inpatient encounter, the nutrition support care team
episodeEpisodeThis type of team focuses on one specific episode of care with a defined time period or self-limiting process (e.g. 10 visits). The episode of care is determined by the context of use. For example, a maternity care team over 9 months.
