Perspectives on Care Coordination
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s Care Coordination Measures Atlas describes three different perspectives on care coordination:
- Patient/family perspective: Care coordination ensures the patient’s needs are met and information is shared across different types of healthcare providers and settings.
- Healthcare professional(s) perspective: Care coordination ensures that providers work together and with their patients in order to assess and meet patient needs and help them to navigate the healthcare system.
- System representative(s) perspective: Care coordination ensures all patient care activities are integrated within and across a system of care, such as an Accountable Care Organization (ACO).
