The Care Coordination program of SJBPH is a function that supports information-sharing across providers, patients, types and levels of service, sites and time frames. Care Coordination is most needed by those who have multiple needs that cannot be met by a single clinician or by a single clinical organization, and which are ongoing, with their mix and intensity subject to change over time.
Care Coordination is a benefit of Health First Colorado (Medicaid) designed to provide access, guidance and advocacy to those who face barriers to health care and resources, and to support a community-wide approach to reducing those barriers through systems-level work.
