The importance of safe care transitions is an essential aspect of health care quality and patient safety. Although focus on transitions of care (ToC) exploded in the first decade of the 21st century, it is not a new concept. The failures of care transitions have very real financial consequences to acute care settings. With the creation of integrated health care networks and risk-sharing agreements, financial penalties extending across the entire care continuum are on the horizon.

At the conclusion of this activity, attendees will be able to:
  • Review the historical development of ToC
  • Identify essentials of safe and effective ToC
  • Define the various transitions of care models
  • Explore the rise in importance of community-based initiatives
  • Discuss quality and outcomes associated with ToC
