Care coordination organizes healthcare needs such as scheduling appointments, connecting you to primary care physicians, monitoring chronic conditions and much more. The goal of care coordination is to help you find the safest, most effective care, resulting in better health outcomes.
Examples of Care Coordination Services
Examples of care coordination services can include:
- All of your healthcare providers working closer together
- Your healthcare providers assessing your needs and goals based on your overall health (not just their specialty or focus area)
- This connection of services can help with transitions of care
- Your care team can create a proactive care plan
- Your care team and healthcare providers can also share community resources that are available to and beneficial for you
Benefits of Utilizing Care Coordination
Coordination of care can be extremely impactful on your overall health, but some of the main benefits include:
- Better Health Outcomes: Care coordination benefits both the patient and the provider, keeping both you and your doctor(s) better informed to create a safe and effective care plan.
- Improved Understanding: When working with a care coordinator, you will have a better understanding of your care, from prescriptions to treatment options and everything in between.
