Best practices for care coordination [Special Report]

By Zack Budryk

The transition to value-based care has led to many hospitals and health systems taking a more active role in care coordination. This team-based approach to care requires organizations to work with primary care physicians, payers and other providers to ensure that after discharge, patients receive the necessary care once they are referred to post-acute settings.

It requires healthcare providers to develop strategies for care coordination and effective communication, so the continuum of care doesn't become a game of telephone.

In this special report, FierceHealthcare examines best practices for care coordination to ensure patients receive the right care, in the right place and at the right time.
