Improving on Transitions of Care: Emergency Department to Home

NTOCC believes in the commitment of healthcare workers, practitioners, and leaders and in their ability to make a difference in improving transitions of care. To further NTOCC’s reach for improving the quality of care transitions, we have added to our Implementation and Evaluation Plan by offering this additional module: the emergency department to home transition. The methodology used here is the same for the introductory module released in 2008—implement a plan and evaluate it to see how it is working. This document is intended to be used in conjunction with the original document, “Improving on Transitions of Care: How to Implement and Evaluate a Plan.” This plan includes evaluation questions, acceptable metrics or measures, tools, and tips applicable to emergency departments, home caregivers, and primary care offices. As with other NTOCC strategies, communication is the most important component of any plan, tool, or quality improvement effort.
