Transition of care involves patients moving from one care setting to another care setting. Transitions can be between an acute setting and a chronic setting. Or, they could be within one setting, such as hospitals, long-term care providers, and clinics. Up to 70% of medical errors are due to miscommunications during the transition of care.
We recently hosted a meeting on transitions of care from which we identified several best practices, areas for improvement, and useful tools!
