The Care Coordination Institute (CCI) is committed to partnering with physicians, hospitals, and other health care providers to transform the health of communities through facilitation and education around coordination of care, evidence-based best practices and the promotion of healthy lifestyles. The goal of the program is to support the practitioner/patient relationship and plan of care through risk management and establishing healthy lifestyle behaviors. Care Coordination Institute offers condition management programs for patients who are identified with diabetes, congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, hypertension and hyperlipidemia.
A patient in the program will receive educational materials and in-person meetings with a health coach. A health coach will assist patients in developing an action plan and help them understand and manage their medications. The health coach will also keep the patient’s healthcare providers informed of their action plan, goals and progress. The information a patient receives through this program does not replace their provider’s care. A patient must still discuss any questions or concerns they may have with their provider.
