How Do Partners For Kids Care Coordinators Help Patients and Families?
As a nurse or social worker, have you ever wondered what happens to patients after they leave the hospital?
One way Partners For Kids helps families is through the Care Navigation program. The Care Navigation Program improves the lives of children and their families by making health care easy to use. Care Coordinators assist children with medical complexity and their families to navigate the health care system uneventfully, efficiently, and as effectively as possible, allowing them to spend less time in the hospital. The need for care coordination is significant as families are faced with various settings, care teams, managing care at home and follow-up appointments.
Care Coordinators focus on building relationships, removing barriers and solving problems. They assess key needs, address local and systemic issues interfering with care, assist families in setting appropriate goals and track progress toward achieving those goals.
Care Coordinators work with all who are involved a patient’s care, including schools, insurance companies, community groups and the health care team, to help make sure a patient gets what he or she needs.
