Care Team Coordination

Care team coordination solutions facilitate HIPAA-compliant collaboration and communication across the clinical and care management team. For example, care team members might use coordination software to develop and manage care plans, assign tasks, take notes, share content with patients, and track patient progress.  

 

Care team coordination solutions frequently have features that overlap with those found in the Clinical Workflow Management, Complex Care Management, and Secure Patient Communications categories. However, vendors in the care team coordination category tend to have a greater focus on supporting care teams internally.
