Evaluating the Comparative Effectiveness of Care Coordination for Disabled Populations
Tuesday, April 5, 2011
Adults with disabilities are likely to use many costly services delivered by a diversity of providers, and coordinating their care has become a policy priority. Both the Institute of Medicine and Federal Coordinating Council have emphasized the importance of comparative effectiveness studies to clarify the value of care coordination programs for persons with disabilities living in the community. In this forum, we presented a framework for describing the range of personal characteristics, services, outcomes, and financing issues to consider in a systematic review of care coordination. We also reported on key findings from a systematic review of the recent care coordination literature, summarize what additional information is needed, and discussed implications for future research on which care coordination strategies work best for various disabled populations.
