Currently serving two important roles, Dr. Cyn Kotarski supports the newly formed and integrated care operations at PDA (specifically CoLEAD).
Dr. Kotarski is the medical director for the organization and also serves in a separate independent contractor role as the direct medical provider for CoLEAD. These two roles are mutually reinforcing and of great value during a time when integrated and holistic care for marginalized populations is known to be what will actually transform healthcare delivery systems to provide excellent care, improve outcomes, and lower costs.
In her Medical Director role for PDA, as informed by direct services provided to the CoLEAD program, Dr. Kotarski oversees care coordination. Care coordination is case management within CoLEAD that is responsive to complex healthcare needs in order to provide a fully integrated approach that meets participants where they are. She also responds to the coordination of immediate physical and behavioral healthcare needs while other needed resources are advocated for and supported (housing, basic needs, employment, connection to community). In addition, Dr. Kotarski supports a healthcare program that integrates with PDA’s community support systems to improve participant outcomes.
