Transitions of Care

(Updated October 16th 2018)

Transitions of Care refers to care directed at making a smooth transition between levels of care and/or care settings. Several transition care programs and services have been developed and implemented in an effort to improve quality, reduce the cost of health care, and reduce hospital readmissions.

Patient-Centered Medical Homes conduct interventions such as post-hospital discharge follow-up phone calls within 24-48 hours and scheduling a return visit with the primary care physician within 5 to 7 days. The call ensures patients are contacted by someone they know and whom they have an established relationship.
