Center for Improving Value in Health Care
Effective care transitions for individuals from one setting or provider to another is an important component of a highly-functioning health care delivery system. Successful care transitions are indicators of multiple processes such as improved communication and coordination among providers; patient-centered care that highlights shared decision-making; patient education and empowerment. We know that better care transitions reduce medication error rates, emergency room visits, and hospital readmissions, and ultimately achieve the Triple Aim through improved patient experience and health outcomes at a lower cost to consumers and Colorado’s health care system.
The purpose of the Care Transitions Task Force is to convene organizations across the state that are implementing care transitions interventions in order to share opportunities for learning, identify overlap or gaps in efforts, foster collaboration, and advance the integration of patient and family-centered approaches across Colorado’s health care delivery system.
