Defining Care Coordination:
Patient care coordination refers to the process of organizing and managing healthcare services for patients in a collaborative and efficient manner. It involves the coordination of various healthcare providers, including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other allied health professionals, to ensure that patients receive timely and appropriate care that is tailored to their unique needs.
Effective patient care coordination requires the use of advanced technologies, such as electronic health records (EHRs) and telemedicine, to facilitate communication and information sharing among healthcare providers. It also involves the development of care plans that are based on evidence-based guidelines and patient preferences. Our team at Vis-À-Vis Health offers dedicated Care Coordination services that include the coordination of orders for in-home ancillary services, including radiology, labs, pharmacy, durable medical equipment (DME), transportation, and more.
Our Care Coordination can help improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs by minimizing duplication of services, preventing medical errors, and promoting continuity of care. It is particularly important for patients with complex medical needs or chronic conditions who require ongoing care from multiple providers.
Overall, patient care coordination is a critical component of high-quality healthcare that aims to optimize patient health outcomes while ensuring that healthcare resources are used efficiently and effectively.
