The OVHA's Care Coordination Program (CCP), in conjunction with the Chronic Care Management Program (CCMP), exemplifies the Chronic Care Model in action.
The OVHA CCP staff focus on the individual's hierarchy of needs and psycho-social indicators of health in addition to the chronic health condition to improve and sustain health.
