Indiana Care Circle
Indiana Care Circle is a learning network of local professionals serving Tippecanoe and surrounding Indiana counties.
Statement of Purpose: Indiana Care Circle (ICC) exists to enhance continuity of care as an essential component of the health care delivery system and an integral part of the total patient care.
ICC accepts the responsibility of promoting the development and systematic implementation of the highest standards of continuity of care.
ICC serves as a medium for the sharing of professional problems, solutions, and resources in the development of health care programs.
ICC also serves to promote administrative awareness of the standards, structure, and organization of a continuity of care program.
Continuity of Care: The World Health Organization defines Continuum of Care as:
"the provision of comprehensive care from the hospital to the home, which advocates the pooling together of medical and social services within the community and the creation of linkages between community care initiatives at all levels of the health care system."
Indiana Care Circle is dedicated to continual improvement of the ways this concept is working in the Tippecanoe County area.
