A strong communication and efficient coordination is required among various health care service providers, working together to provide appropriate delivery of health care services. In case, various stake holders in the network of health care providers fail to exercise such competent organization and management, patients will have to bear undesirable consequences1. This situation can lead to amplified costs and decreased quality of health care services. Studies have shown that the communication gaps between health care providers escort towards the reduction of care coordination and readmissions2. It has been originated that both hospitals and primary care physicians experiences parallel challenges like lack of time and difficulty in reaching other practitioners resulting in scant information evaluation, medication list inconsistencies and a lack of certainty with respect to liabilities for impending tests and home health2.The communication between patients and relevant medical staff is also very crucial, particularly at the time of admission and discharge. This emphasizes that there are numerous challenges in care coordination, information dealing, follow-up care and treatment management.
