Care Coordination

One of the greatest challenges with health care today is that providers do not talk to one another. A primary care provider, for instance, may have no idea that their patient has gone to the Emergency Department 5 times in the last few months. There is health care but not a system of care. This impacts the quality of care received. Care coordination is about building a team approach to health care by connecting providers to each other, their patients and the community. By providing health care in a coordinated fashion, we can improve outcomes and reduce health related disparities. Learn more about Promising Practices in care coordination in the links below.
