Coordinating care with community partners plays a major role in health care's transition from "volume to value". Hospitals, clinics and community partners are central to any care coordination effort. In this series of webinars, participants will learn the fundamentals of care coordination, considerations for health care IT, as well as privacy and security concerns when working with multiple entities. Participants will also learn how to engage their local providers and community organizations in this effort.

Part one includes an introduction to care coordination and how it fits with triple aim. An in-depth discussion of two aspects of care coordination will be discussed - defining the target population and how an assessment can help focus coordination efforts. Review of how information technology is used to support these efforts.
