Module 3: Implementation
Each care coordination program is different and there is no one-size-fits-all implementation strategy. This
module identifies key concepts to consider when implementing a care coordination program in rural communities.
Module 2 describes key implementation considerations
as they relate to each of the six program models for rural
care coordination — staffing, resources, liability, quality improvement, geography and transportation,
populations, adopting a whole person mindset, and family involvement. In this module, several cross-cutting
issues to consider prior to implementing a rural care coordination program are also described.
For a broad overview of rural program implementation, see Implementing a Rural Community Health
Program in the Rural Community Health Toolkit.
