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.
