What We Learned: HIN's industry survey on care coordination of dual eligibles captured how 72 healthcare organizations coordinate the care of dual eligibles, including how duals are stratified into a care coordination program, the key characteristics of the duals population served, the greatest administrative challenge of coordinating care for duals, and much more. According to survey respondents, the top five professionals responsible for dual eligible care coordination are:
