Patients with complex healthcare concerns may receive care from a primary care physician, a visiting nurse, or a range of specialists. Coordinating that care can be challenging for patients and caregivers alike. Within VA, the goals of care coordination research are to understand those factors that contribute to effectively organized patient care and the sharing of information among all of a patient's caregivers. Ideally, care coordination research results in evidence that helps healthcare systems and providers achieve safer, higher quality, and more effective care for our nation's Veterans.

- Veterans Using VA and Non-VA Care Experience More Healthcare “Hassles” than Veterans Using VA Care Only
Investigators in this study compared “hassles” experienced by Veterans receiving VA healthcare only versus those receiving dual care from both VA and non-VA community providers. Findings showed that dual-care users experienced more hassles than VA-only users (average 5.5 vs. 4.3 hassles). The overall number of reported hassles ranged from 0 to 16, with 79% of Veterans reporting that they experienc...

- Eight Organizational Target Areas for Improving Access to Primary Care
This study sought to identify priorities for improving healthcare organization management of patient access to primary care based on prior evidence and a stakeholder panel. Findings showed that optimal access to primary care for enrolled patient populations requires active ongoing management of at least eight diverse target areas (two organizational structure targets, four process improvements, an...

- JGIM Supplement Features VA Research on Care Coordination Both within VA and with Non-VA Healthcare Providers
In March 2018, a state-of-the-art (SOTA) conference on care coordination was jointly planned by VA HSR&D and the Offices of Primary Care, Community Care, Nursing Services, and Care Management and Social Work. The SOTA was organized into three workgroups: 1) measures and models of care coordination; 2) care coordination within the VA system; and 3) care coordination between VA and non-VA providers ...

- Effect of Intensive Primary Care on Patient Experience Outcomes
To address the gap in evidence about patient experiences with intensive primary care, study investigators conducted a survey of Veterans in a five-site randomized trial of intensive primary care in the VA healthcare system. Findings showed that augmenting VA’s patient-centered medical home with intensive primary care had a modestly positive influence on high-risk patients’ experiences with care co...

- Receipt of Opioid Prescriptions from Both VA and Medicare Associated with Greater Likelihood of Overdose Death
This study assessed the association between dual receipt of opioid prescriptions from VA and Medicare Part D and prescription opioid overdose death among Veterans enrolled in both VA and Part D. Findings showed that receipt of opioid prescriptions from both VA and Part D was associated with 2-3 times greater odds of overdose death than among Veterans receiving opioids from VA or Part D only. Dual ...
