Abstract
Care coordination is a key strategy that has the potential to improve the effectiveness, safety, and efficiency of the American healthcare system. Well-designed, targeted care coordination helps ensure that the right healthcare is delivered to the right people at the right time to improve outcomes for everyone: patients, providers, and payers. Recently, Dr. Andrea Wade, MCC’s Provost and Academic Vice President, served on the NYSDOH’s SIM/DSRIP Workforce Curriculum workgroup that identified five core care coordination competencies for educating the future workforce. Additionally, Dr. Wade, while at Broome Community College, led the creation of a highly successful model Foundations for Assisting in Home Care Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) supported with prior IITG funding. This experience has proven that MOOCs are a viable medium to deliver training on these new competencies to the healthcare workforce. This project will support the creation of a course that will benefit health care professionals directly and create open content that can be used by any educational institution to augment their healthcare curriculum.
Description
This project will create a system of courses to teach the five new coordination competencies and address the talent gap that currently exists in the Health Care Coordination field throughout New York State and beyond.
