Many times, these same patients have no insurance or are underinsured, making them less likely to have access to the resources needed.Care coordination is a deliberate process shown to decrease healthcare costs while improving the health of the patient. It is a team-based approach encompassing care by a medical team and additional services such as patient education, referrals, access to community-based services, and close monitoring. Unfortunately, because the healthcare system is fragmented and complex, care coordination does not currently have the standardized techniques or processes in place to make an optimal impact. This course will provide additional information on the process of care coordination including the various components of care coordination, ideas on how to initiate a care coordination process, and practical applications for current practice.
