Care coordination means organizing patient care activities and sharing information among all of the participants concerned with a patient’s care to achieve safer and more effective care. This means that the patient’s needs and preferences are known ahead of time and communicated at the right time to the right people, and that this information is used to provide safe, appropriate, and effective care.
At InterCommunity, we are deeply committed to care coordination for all patients. We understand that physical, emotional and behavioral health systems are intertwined. Many times, providers are limited to treating symptoms without the resources necessary to address the other issues that affect consumers’ overall health.
This is not the case at InterCommunity. Our health care center offers the unique opportunity to get a wide range of your healthcare services met, all under one roof. If we are unable to provide the specialty service you need, we have dedicated staff who will work with you to assess your needs and goals, and find and schedule an appointment with preferred provider. This includes areas such as:
In addition, we seek to educate consumers about quality healthcare options, help the consumers overcome barriers to care, and work collaboratively with other health and human service agencies to enhance and integrate all facets of health. We help you in creating a proactive care plan and are engaged in monitoring and follow up, including responding to changes in your needs. We accept people across the life spectrum, no matter your life situation or ability to pay.
Providing these services at InterCommunity will improve health outcomes for its consumers, highlighting the importance of whole person healthcare. At InterCommunity, we reach beyond traditional alliances to bring together a broader set of organizations committed to promoting a healthy lifestyle.
