June 14th Empowered #patientchat: How Does An Empowered Patient Approach Care Coordination?
You’re Invited! We hope you’ll join us for our next Empowered #patientchat as we discuss care coordination. Care coordination is “the deliberate organization of patient care activities between two or more participants (including the patient) involved in a patient’s care to facilitate the appropriate delivery of health care services.”
Care coordination can mean different things to different people, but mostly includes the following aspects of care:
- Managing the exchange of information among participants responsible for different aspects of care
- Synchronizes the delivery of a patient’s health care from multiple providers and specialists.
- Avoiding unnecessary and/or redundant tests and procedures, which can both improve the care experience and reduce the cost of care
- Assessing all of a patient’s needs – not just their immediate clinical needs
Guiding our discussion will be the following Topic (T#:) Questions:
T1: Why is care coordination important? #patientchat
