All across the country, communities work to address the needs of their most vulnerable members. Due to the historically fragmented model of care, critical services are often split up among a variety of programs and providers that are often not in contact.
This siloed approach subjects individuals to overlapping and non-coordinated care plans, resulting in increased provider costs while achieving poorer health outcomes.
Health and human services agencies are working to transition to a better approach. Care coordination breaks down the barriers dividing primary care, behavioral health, and community-based organizations that, together, provide the services necessary to truly improve outcomes for high-needs individuals.
