Case Management: A Model that Touches the Care Continuum

The art of transitioning patients from the hospital back to the community: a Case Management Model to help manage 30 day readmissions.

Readmission reduction programs have popped up all over the nation as hospitals seek to avoid readmission penalties. At Sharp Healthcare in San Diego California, we were given the opportunity to participate in the Community-based Care Transitions Program (CCTP) (, through a grant from CMS to work with other hospital systems and our Community-based organization Aging and Independence Services.

Connecting and communicating all these pieces is where the art of managing these patients lies. Electronic data support is essential to success in not only transitioning hospitalized patients between services and departments, but enables hospital based staff to connect and keep track of patients after they are back in the community.
