  • Follow your doctor’s treatment plans
  • Manage medications
  • Coordinate health care appointments
  • Learn tips for self-care
  • Access resources or programs you need

For Physicians

Help Your Patients Reach Their Health Goals

An additional Physician Care coordination video was created to help each clinician better understand the program and to help patients learn more. The three-minute Physician video provides a summary of the program and its benefits — namely, improved patient outcomes. We encourage every clinician to view the video and share the program details with patients as appropriate.

How We're Helping Communities

Preventing Unnecessary Hospital Says

Effective care coordination can help patients stay healthy — and it can also help them recuperate and even prevent readmission to the hospital. This was the case for a recent patient referred to Dignity Health care coordination after a hospital stay. In thanking our team for following the patient’s care and making recommendations based on the data collected, his family member let us know that this coordination of care helped the patient improve and avoid readmission.

Coordinating to Expedite Care

Care coordination can help ensure patients of all ages get the care they need, exactly when they need it by. When a toddler needed to see an orthopaedic surgeon for a fracture on a Friday but a letter of agency contact was unavailable, Dignity Health’s care coordination team took action, transferring the child to a location where they could be seen immediately.

Critical Support in A Crisis

Knowing you have a team behind you can help patients get through even the most difficult of circumstances. While one patient was in short-term rehabilitation following hip surgery, her husband and daughter both passed away, causing her to become depressed and stop participating in therapy. But with help from Dignity Health’s care coordination team, she was able to connect with resources for critical support at a crucial point in her recovery, including a a licensed clinical social worker, who met with the patient, encouraged her to reengage in therapy, and made medication recommendations to her physician, all of which made it possible for her to recover and return home.
