The Transitions of Care Task Force

 

The Transitions of Care task force is a group of professionals who together create a valuable space for hospitals and health centers to discuss care coordination efforts across the region. The TOC task force works to establish standards of care and provide recommendations for regional  standards of transitions of care its communication to the region.

 

The TOC collaborative is also an oversight of our CRC program, having expanded the role of the CRC from uni-directional referral of hospital to health center, into facilitating bi-directional communication between and across providers and patients to foster effective transitions of care.

 


Goal

Promote and sustain high-quality efficient patient transitions between the hospital (inpatient or emergency department) and the outpatient setting (primary care or urgently-needed specialty care) through improved communication and coordination across health care organizations and with our patients.
