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

We hope to see you Friday, June 14th on Twitter (or at 10:00 am Pacific / 1:00 pm Eastern. Be sure to include the hashtag #patientchat in all your responses!
