Care Coordination

Navigating complex systems of care is overwhelming, especially for families and individuals facing a new or change in diagnosis, or when exploring options for treatment or resources in any special circumstances. Having an individual, or team of people, communicating and coordinating care plans relieves stress and offers clarity. This is why many community organizations take on a role of care coordination for people in need.

Care coordination takes many forms and spans many different situations and diagnoses. The solutions available from iCarol assist care coordinators with tracking progress, connection with resources, communication among agencies, and much more.

Our customers use multiple tools available within iCarol to coordinate care themselves, or participate in continuums of care along with partners and community-based organizations. One such organization is 2-1-1 Maryland. Their Care Coordination Program assists hospital patients discharged following mental health-related visits to the emergency department.

2-1-1 Maryland uses iCarol throughout the process of helping dispatched patients who could benefit from ongoing care coordination and connection to resources for long-term resilience.
