Primary care serves as the cornerstone for building a strong healthcare system that ensures positive health outcomes and health equity. Within the primacy care system, care coordination is important in organizing patient care activities and sharing information among all the participants concerned with a patient’s care.
One way of achieving coordinated care is through using broad care coordination approaches to improving health care delivery. Examples of broad care coordination approaches include:
- Teamwork (Team Based Care)
- Care Management
- Medication Management
- Health Information Technology
- Patient-centered Medical Home.
