Efficient handling of care transitions is high on healthcare’s agenda. According to a recent HIN survey, more than 90 percent of responding healthcare organizations have programs in this area.

Care transitions are checkpoints not only to engage patients and caregivers, but to check the patient’s health status. Further, proper management of transitions in care can dramatically hasten that person’s return to health, as well as reduce return ER visits or rehospitalizations.

This video from the Healthcare Intelligence Network features exclusive, actionable data from HIN’s 2013 Care Transitions survey including metrics on the most critical care transitions, top targeted transitions, quality of care and more.

This video features Alicia Goroski, senior project director for care transitions for the Colorado Foundation for Medical Care, discussing successful strategies utilized by CFMC and the effects of quality improvement organizations (QIO) on care transitions. Additionally, Cheryl Bailey, vice president of patient care services at Cullman Regional Medical Center, will identify the benefits of their Good to Go program, which records and personalizes patient discharge sessions.
