Can better communications reduce the risk of transitioning patients from one health care setting to another?

Launching the PCORI Transitional Care Evidence to Action Network

Transitioning patients from one health care setting to another can be risky to the patient and could lead to other hospitalizations or complications if issues concerning the patient’s care are not clearly communicated to the patient and the entire care team.  Additionally, despite growing evidence that certain models of care transition successfully reduce readmission or emergency department visit rates after discharge, hospitals and communities are still challenged with identifying what specific components or strategies to implement.
