Coordinated Patient Care is an educational website meant to provide patient’s with coordinated after-care guidance based on their chronic condition. In recent years, as health care has gotten more complex, better patient care has necessitated the need to coordinate between different health care providers.
The ask for this project was to provide a resource for patients who are still in the hospital. However, the audience was two-fold, with 2 distinct needs: the health care provider who needed a resource that could be quickly and easily customized for a myriad of conditions and educational needs. And the patient, who were often of limited literacy. In addition, patients are in a vulnerable state, due to being sick as well as in the hospital – an unfamiliar environment.
