Elements of Service Coordination
Service coordination, which includes case management and client mobilization, establishes a framework for actions to enable the client to achieve specific goals. It includes client and other key interactions, treatment coordination and referral services, community service resources coordination and managed care programs, customer promotion, and ongoing assessment of treatment progress and client needs. The service coordination has three main components: the use of a treatment plan, consultation, and continuous assessment and treatment plan. This paper discusses the elements of the implementation of the treatment plan.
The goal of a treatment plan execution is to protect clients and provide clarity on the process. The element is related to effecting an individualized treatment plan for the individual. This plan can be accomplished in a variety of ways, even for healthy people. Users of this level will need to make sure that the practice reflects the details and policies that are up-to-date. Every good treatment process begins with a clear goal (or a set of goals). Those in charge should indicate what the client wants to work for and write it down without limiting their work. The information written down can always change with time; however, is it helpful to write down and discuss the client’s intention to start treatment. Having a clear goal ensures that everyone is on the same page and keeps all the involved parties responsible, focusing on what is needed. It also helps the client feel that treatment is more than esoteric, something they can explain to a spouse, friend, or family member. Implementing a treatment plan protects both the provider and the client, as it ensures that all stakeholders have a clear understanding of the progress being made and the long-term goals.
