URAC Releases Issue Briefs Examining Stakeholders Views of Care Coordination Along the Healthcare Continuum
Date:10/1/2007

ach focuses on outcomes, patient experience, and cost, and, Travis noted, "care coordination touches all three." Without care coordination, Travis said the outcomes will be worse or the cost will be higher -- or perhaps both.

Other experts on the URAC panel will be Howard Pitluck, MD, MPH, FACS, vice president and chief medical director, health services advisory group for the National Transitions of Care Coalition; and Julian Roberts, executive director, National Association of Specialty Health Organizations. The panel will take place at the Summit during a general session Oct. 4.

"Care coordination involves more elements than ever before, and alliances like those represented on the URAC panel are increasingly more important in the effort to streamline care," said Alan P. Spielman, URAC's president and chief executive officer. "In many cases the patient is the only constant, navigating fragmented silos of care. Integrated care coordination will involve every health management component -- utilization management, case management and disease management --- with interactive consumer-decision-support tools, health promotion and employer-based health efforts."

Thorpe's insights on care coordination have been captured in a URAC issue brief, "Collaborating to Create Coordination," available online at http://www.urac.org/savedfiles/2Septissuebrief_webFINAL_%282%29.pdf.

Another issue brief, "Coordinating care: Employers, consumers and communications," captures the views of MBGH CEO Christie Travis and CMSAA and URAC board member Cheri Lattimer. It is available at: http://www.urac.org/accreditationEducation/OctIssueBriefWebFINAL.pdf
