Coordination of Care
Organizations are being driven to take greater responsibility for patient outcomes through accountable care organizations and risk-based reimbursement methods. Coordination of care is key to reducing risk and fostering optimal outcomes. Models that integrate with health and social support services within a community—community-based care coordination—provide the strongest support for patients.
Stratis Health helps health care organizations systematically organize patient care activities and share information among everyone concerned with a patient’s care, to achieve safer and more effective care.

Health information technology
Health IT has become instrumental in supporting care coordination. Electronic health records allow better tracking of patient conditions for follow up and gather data that allows for risk stratification and supportive care plans. Providers, communities, and patients need to be prepare to exchange health information electronically with each other.
