To use a cross-sectional survey methodology with care coordinators (managers/direct care providers) AIM: to describe: 1) characteristics of care coordinators, 2) how they do their work, 3) the current state of information that they collect, and 4) identify gaps/missing information needed to facilitate the communication and care across the care continuum
