Enterprise Care Coordination (ECCO)
BayCare Physician Partners maintains programs to meet the care needs of its patients. You may be identified for these programs or initiatives based on diagnoses, care or services for which you are overdue or need but have not received, or medical events such as a recent hospital stay. You may also be referred for enrollment in these programs by your primary care provider, by a Care Coordinator, or a family member. You may also refer yourself for these programs.
Patients are considered eligible for these programs or services upon identification. You can opt in or out of the Programs for which you are eligible by calling (727) 519-1336. Below is a list of the programs and initiatives we currently offer:
Patients who are overdue for preventive services or care related to their chronic health conditions may be referred to the Stay Healthy Program. Patients in this program may receive reminders about preventive care and services and help making appointments. Patients may also be referred to other Health Coordination Programs for additional support.
It is important to see your primary care doctor as soon as possible after any hospital stay. Patients who have a recent inpatient hospital discharge may be enrolled in the Transitional Care Coordination Program. Patients in this program receive follow-up calls from a Care Coordinator over a period of 30 days. Care Coordinators can help you review your medications, manage your symptoms, provide additional information about your illness, and refer you for any additional services you may need.
Chronic Complex Care
Many patients have chronic conditions or other needs that could benefit from help from a Care Coordinator. These members may be referred to Care Coordinators who can provide health education and support, or assist patients with arranging additional resources and referrals, as needed.
