SWCAHEC recognizes the vital role that care coordinators play in increasing the wellness of Southwestern Colorado. They generously collaborate with healthcare organizations, medical practices, and community organizations to provide the most comprehensive care to patients and clients in our region. As a capacity building organization, we would like to support Care Coordinators by providing high quality and meaningful training and coaching opportunities. To this end, we convene a Care Coordination Collaborative to provide the opportunity to discuss the issues that care coordinators face in providing care and to brainstorm about solutions and education and training opportunities that provide knowledge and strategies to address these issues.
The goal of the Care Coordination Collaborative is to support and improve care coordination in order to address social and economic barriers to health in rural, Southwestern Colorado.
Objective: Convene care coordinators and related service providers to address current issues, identify gaps in service, and remove existing barriers to care in the region.
