Getting Doctors Talking Key To Health Care Fix : NPR – Dr. ANN O’MALLEY (Center for Studying Health System Change): Coordinated care refers to the integration of health care across all of a patient’s needs, conditions, the different clinicians that person sees and the different settings where the patient receives care. SILBERNER: Seventy-six-year-old Ben Bart(ph) knows what coordinated care means. He’s a retired electronics engineer. He likes systems and he likes Kaiser Permanente, where all the doctors and nurses work together and share a computer system. Bart has diabetes, which can cause eye problems, so his primary care doctor sent him to a Kaiser ophthalmologist.
