What is Care Coordination?

Care coordination maximizes the value of care being delivered by ensuring that the patient’s needs and preferences are known and addressed across providers and settings.

Providers who practice good care coordination will:

  • Reduce fragmentation of care
  • Help patients access timely, appropriate care
  • Help patients fully engage in their care

Successful care coordination involves full participation and cooperation between patients, providers, and care systems.

Among PCDC’s offerings:
