The coordinated care system is a statewide health system that would center on countywide or citywide Coordinated Care Organizations.
A Coordinated Care Organization is basically a community network of health care providers that will share information and coordinate services to make the overall health care system more efficient. The program will also try to emphasize preventative health care services sometimes even offered at patient’s homes as a way to avoid more costly emergency room visits.
