The role of the Care Coordination workgroup at the DAWN Clinic is paramount as we ensure that patients understand the next steps in their care, receive follow-up care, and are able to connect with the appropriate referrals. As patients’ first point of contact with the DAWN Clinic, Care Coordinators also check-in with patients about follow-up screening tests and appointments. A large part of our services involve connecting patients to housing, food, employment, insurance, tobacco cessation, alcohol cessation, ฯลฯ. services in the community. By ensuring efficient acquisition and sharing of patient records, our workgroup establishes partnerships and referral systems with local community organizations.
