Transition of Care Program for Inpatient & Observation Units (TOC)
Project 2biv - Care transitions intervention model to reduce 30-day readmissions of chronic health conditions
Project 2bix - Implementation of observational programs in hospitals
Project Objective Statement
To provide a 30-day supported transition period after a hospitalization to ensure discharge directions are understood and implemented by the patients at high risk of readmission, particularly patients with cardiac, renal, diabetes, respiratory and/or behavioral health disorders.
To establish appropriately sized observation units (either dedicated beds or scattered beds) in all hospitals in the county to reduce short stay admissions, thereby minimizing Potentially Preventable Readmissions.
