Improving Transitions in the Care of Older, Hospitalized Patients


Improving the coordination of post-hospital care for elderly, chronically ill patients has proved difficult. A major reason is the dearth of quality-of-care measures to help pinpoint problems that occur during the transition from one site of care to another. This project will refine and test the Care Transitions Measure, a tool that assesses problems in care coordination from the patient's perspective so that hospital systems can develop targeted solutions. An advisory committee representing organizations involved in furthering quality improvement at the health system and policy levels will provide guidance in the refinement and testing processes, and later will promote the measure's use by health care providers.
