Care Coordination

Care coordination involves deliberately organizing patient care activities and sharing information among all vested participants to achieve safer and more effective care, per the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).

These patient care activities span all care settings, including the patient's home, according to the Healthcare Intelligence Network's Benchmark Survey on Care Coordination.

Initiatives aimed at coordinating care for high-risk patients are reporting healthcare cost savings, reductions in expensive sites of care and improvements in quality, outcomes and patient satisfaction.
