Care coordination, increasingly recognized as an effective component of health care delivery, allows members of health care teams to work together to benefit the patient.
Congratulations to the hardworking team at the Mobile Outreach Clinic (MOC) for being published by the Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved (JHCPU). Their manuscript highlighting their innovative care coordination program was published in the May issue of the JHCPU. The manuscript outlines the process in which the MOC developed, implemented and sustained a student run care Coordination Program. It outlines all the necessary steps to carry out its development and then how to train and evaluate the best students for the job. They have experienced tremendously positive feedback from our patients and providers due to their care coordinators hard work. With the help of their Care Coordinators, they are able to better handle complex medical and social issues. They hope that with this Manuscript, more clinics are able to understand how to start their own care coordination program and the value that it will add to the patients’ healthcare experience.
