Coordinated Care Services at KentuckyCare
When you have a chronic condition, being able to manage it requires help from different healthcare professionals.
This helps ensure that you get the care you need to stay as healthy as possible while lowering your risk of complications. Having an overall plan for your health involves setting up coordinated care among these different professionals.
A coordinated care plan typically includes a primary care physician, specialists, pharmacists, nurses and nurse practitioners. Other providers, such as formal caregivers or counselors, might also be included.
When you have coordinated care, your plan might include a combination of any of the following:
• Primary care
• Specialty care
• Inpatient care
• Long-term care
• Mental health care
• Medical history
• Test and lab results
• Home care
• Formal and family caregivers
• Education and support for patients and family members
• Community resources
The services that are part of your coordinated care depend on the type of condition you have, how severe it is, and how much it affects your day-to-day activities. At KentuckyCare, our healthcare providers make sure that each patient has a coordinated care plan that includes the services and resources they need.
