Care Coordination Assessment Project
Welcome to the new Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) Care Coordination Assessment Project webpage. To begin this project in 2018, DHCS completed a systemic review of care coordination across the Medi-Cal delivery system, including an internal review of rules and regulations, and a series of site visit interviews with key informants across the state. The project encompasses the full spectrum of care coordination, including screenings, health assessments, case management, care management (provider and plan driven), data, transitions in care, communication, governance, training, monitoring through meaningful metrics, and other issues.
Care Coordination Advisory Committee
DHCS is convening the Advisory Committee meetings to discuss DHCS findings and formulate policy recommendations. After completion of the meetings, DHCS will draft a concept paper of proposed policy changes, vet the proposals with stakeholders, and work to implement policy changes. The Advisory Committee includes Medi-Cal stakeholders, including Medi-Cal managed care plans, counties, providers, sister departments, and Medi-Cal consumer advocates.
Each meeting will address a specific aspect of care coordination. The public will be able attend in person and DHCS will take public comment. DHCS will post Advisory Committee materials in advance of the meetings on this webpage.
Meetings are scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The California Endowment: 1414 K Street, 1st Floor, Suite 100, Sacramento, CA 95814.
