Effective and efficient care coordination across a community is quickly becoming a cornerstone in a healthcare organization’s (HCO’s) strategic efforts to manage the health of the population it serves. Moving beyond discharge summary distribution to reduce readmits, which is still far from perfect, HCOs are now setting their sights on care coordination for the ability to optimize care management, disease management and utilization management (CM, DM & UM).
The solution landscape for care coordination is a highly diverse one that has, to our knowledge, seen very little in the way of formal analysis. Since one of Chilmark Research’s core tenets is to bring clarity to technologies that have the potential to be transformational to the delivery of care, we are launching a new Domain of coverage – Care Coordination. This Domain Monitor gives an early preview as to our current thoughts, informed in-part through discussions with CAS clients, on this important area that will guide our research in the coming months.
