Care Transitions

Transition of care is the movement of a patient from one setting of care to another.

Health care providers should make engaging patients and families in transition planning a priority to not only help reduce the rate of preventable readmissions, but also provide better transitions of care to other providers, increase the success of self-management practices and provide for the increased health of the population. Engaging patients in more circular, overlapping, and continual supportive care transitions is key to improving care.
