Care coordination, increasingly recognized as an effective component of health care delivery, allows members of health care teams to work together to benefit the patient.
What sets MOC apart from other clinics is our innovative Care Coordination program, where trained undergraduate and graduate student volunteers have the opportunity to work with patients and build relationships with them. These students do intake with the patients, take and record vitals, scribe first drafts of clinic visit notes, and make follow-up phone calls to follow their patients’ progress.
