Learn the fundamentals of care coordination, considerations for health care IT, as well as privacy and security concerns when working with multiple entities. Learn how to engage their local providers and community organizations in this effort. 

Part 2 focuses on building your interdisciplinary care team and care plan. Privacy and security issues, which are often barriers to these efforts, are discussed. Engagement of community partners is critical - learn best practices.
