The authors explored the feasibility of providing frequent, brief client contact as a strategy for reallocating Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) staff time to new clients, while preserving relationships with current clients and ACT program fidelity standards. A retrospective analysis of 4 years of service records for a high-fidelity ACT team revealed gradual increases in staff-client contact frequency, and corresponding decreases in contact duration. During these years, fidelity to ACT standards remained moderately high, and clients' employment and hospitalization outcomes improved.
