Coordinating Care Transitions for the Elderly and
Dual Eligibles: Fostering Self-Management
and Reducing Readmissions

When the elderly and dually eligible populations transition
from one healthcare setting to another, they frequently
encounter gaps in care that negatively impact their health,
unnecessarily prolong hospital stays and specialty care, and
unduly increase the burden on caregivers and family. These
care gaps are most likely to occur during transitions from
primary to specialty care, from the emergency department to
the surgical floor, from hospital to home or from in-patient
to long-term care.

Closing care transition gaps for these populations is the focus
of "Coordinating Care Transitions for the Elderly and Dual
Eligibles: Fostering Self-Management and Reducing Readmissions
," a new
report available from the Healthcare Intelligence Network.
