Instructions:

In a 5-7 page written assessment, determine how health care technology, coordination of care, and community resources can be applied to address the patient you’ve defined. In addition, plan to spend approximately 2 direct practicum hours exploring these aspects of the problem with the patient you’ve chosen to work with and, if desired, consulting with subject matter and industry experts.
The patient you will use is: Jennifer, a 30 year old female (who is a family friend) diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2015. The population health issue selected is: Ineffective Pain Management.
