Care Management and Coordination

Successful integrated care programs depend on care management and coordination. The key functions of care management are to: (1) assess an individual’s care needs; (2) develop a care plan with the individual or their designee to meet those needs; and (3) put in place covered services or other interventions to accomplish care plan goals. As part of the care management process, care coordination facilitates the communication of information among the care team and allows for timely responses to changes in the individual’s condition, especially during care transitions.
