Coordinating Health Care in Rural America: A Profile of State Models

Friday, July 17, 2015 | 1 p.m. ET/ Noon CT / 11 a.m. MT / 10 a.m. PT

As states strive to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of health care services provided through Medicaid, more attention is focused on coordination of patient care. Successful coordination means that the patient’s needs and preferences are communicated at the right time to the right people and that this communication guides the delivery of safe, appropriate and effective care. Care coordination in rural areas can help to address the disparities in access to care and health status faced by rural residents. This webinar addresses strategies and policy considerations for coordinating care in rural America.
