Health Care Coordination for Individuals with Physical Disabilities

Description

Studied health care coordination and its impact on the lives of people with disabilities. This longitudinal study project included an environmental scan and a series of focus groups to generate and test a conceptual model of the critical elements of effective care coordination; a series of data analyses using administrative Medicaid data to identify and describe Special Needs Basic Care (SNBC) participants with physical disabilities, and to examine health care utilization for SNBC recipients; development of instrumentation to measure the critical elements of effective care coordination; and a mixed methods longitudinal study of SNBC recipients and health care coordinators to examine the interrelationships between the elements of effective health care coordination and outcomes such as access to health care, improve health outcomes, and cost savings.
