Coordination of Health Care

When You Need Help Making Sense of YOUR Health Care – We stand ready to Serve!

The coordination of health care is more important today than ever before. 
Health care costs to consumers coupled with demand for health care  are at all time highs. With proper coordination between every discipline involved in a patient’s care, many real benefits can be accomplished.

What is “Coordination of Care”?
Coordination of Care is basically getting everyone on the same page concerning reaching the goals and outcomes set by you and your physician.
Patients often receive care from multiple physicians. A failure to coordinate care can often lead to patients not getting the care they need, receiving duplicative care, and being at an increased risk of suffering medical errors.  On average, each year, one in seven Medicare patients admitted to a hospital has been subject to a harmful medical mistake in the course of their care.  And nearly one in five Medicare patients discharged from the hospital is readmitted within 30 days – a readmission many patients could have avoided if their care outside of the hospital had been aggressive and better coordinated.
Aggressive Coordination of Care can result in:

  • Reduced hospital admissions
  • Reduced length of hospital stays
  • Reduced costs overall
  • Reduced Emergency Department visits
  • Improved patient outcomes
  • Improved patient overall satisfaction
  • Improved family support and understanding of the client
