What We Learned: HIN's e-survey on care transitions captured efforts by 86 organizations to strive for Triple Aim goals of better care at improved cost during transitions of care. The survey measured existing and planned programs, targeted transitions and populations, transition team members and responsibilities, and much more. According to survey respondents, the most critical care transitions for their populations are:
- Hospital to home: 88.9 percent
- Skilled nursing facility (SNF) to home: 19 percent
- ER to home: 14.3 percent
- ER to PCP/PCMH: 11.1 percent
- Hospital to long-term care (LTC)/SNF: 11.1 percent
- PCP to specialist: 3.2 percent
- Other: 1.6 percent
