This literature review aims to review research studies that have investigated strategies for care coordination through various healthcare delivery models for intellectually/developmentally disabled population (I/DD). This brief offers a set of principles to guide innovative service delivery models, including recommended core structural elements. The strategies designed for the program are to provide care coordination support from UPMC Health Plan by integrating services into the present care management of I/DD members. The main objectives include improving on care coordination through integrated healthcare delivery services by developing models of competent care for I/DD members and positioning UPMC Health Plan as a leader in Medicare-Medicaid integration. The public health significance in this review is to increase the care coordination of health-related practices, services, and programs that affect the care of people with intellectual disabilities. As per the evidence cited in the literature and taking into consideration the structural elements, linking I/DD providers with a Patient Centered Medical Homes (PCMH) and providing a nurse practitioner (NP) based partnership with the residence facilities would result in less unplanned care, transition of care support and more importantly care coordination, fewer readmissions and attract more low-medical expense ratio (MER) members into the UPMC Health Plan products.
