Care Coordination Q & A

What is care coordination?

Care coordination is a primary care subspecialty that shares your medical information securely with other specialists and health care providers. 

Often, chronic illnesses require treatment from multiple professionals. For example, if you have heart disease, your care team might include cardiologists, electrophysiologists, and heart surgeons, in addition to your primary care provider at Honeycomb Medical Group.

Care coordination helps ensure that everyone is on the same page. It streamlines communication between various professionals so you get the most effective treatment possible. 

What does care coordination involve?

At Honeycomb Medical Group, the primary care providers develop care coordination treatment plans based on each person’s health history and goals. Depending on your needs, they might recommend:

  • Medication management
  • Remote patient monitoring (RPM)
  • Creating a proactive treatment plan
  • Linking you with community resources
  • Routine monitoring and follow-up
  • Telemedicine checkups
  • Follow-up care after an emergency hospital visit
  • Coordination with social services for transportation, housing, or food

If you’re recovering from surgery or a major medical event, such as a heart attack or stroke, care coordination can help with your transition from the hospital to a rehabilitation facility, or from the rehabilitation facility back home.

Why is care coordination important?

Enrolling in care coordination at Honeycomb Medical Group is important for several reasons, including:

It improves the quality of care

Modern health care systems are disjointed. Care coordination keeps all of your providers on the same page, ensuring they are all aware of any changes to your treatment plan.

It reduces confusion

Many primary care physicians provide referrals but leave it at that. Care coordination provides an advocate for every step of the referral process.

Your Honeycomb Medical Group provider can schedule your specialist visit, follow up afterward, and provide further guidance.

It results in better treatment outcomes

When all of the providers on your medical team can work together, you’re more likely to achieve your health and wellness goals.
