Guide to Care Transition Management

Transitions of care are a checkpoint not only to engage patients and caregivers in proper post-care but also to confirm providers have a complete picture of patients' health so that handovers are seamless and costly hospitalizations and ER visits can be averted.

According to 2013 HIN market data, 91 percent of healthcare companies have implemented care transition management programs, adapting popular models such as Project RED and the Care Transitions Intervention® to their own populations.
