Washington State Care Coordination within a Medical Home Fact Sheet

One of the core elements of a medical home is care coordination. In order to provide consistent language about the definition of care coordination and its key elements, a fact sheet was developed based on the work of the 2006-2007 Financing Care Coordination Workgroup, facilitated by the Department of Health. The Workgroup was made up of stakeholders from across the state representing health care providers, families, and state and private agencies and organizations. The fact sheet us intended to use as a reference when describing care coordination within a medical home.
