Proper management of transitions in care — the handover of an individual's care from one health setting to another —has the potential to dramatically hasten that person's return to health, as well as reduce the likelihood of a return ER visit or rehospitalization.

The quality of transitional care is also shaping up to be a critical factor in value-based reimbursement, as federal and private payors begin to consider patients' ratings of the quality of transitional care they receive from providers. For example, CMS will weigh the quality of hospitals' transitional care as part of its Medicare reimbursement formula.

In its continued coverage of transitional care, the Healthcare Intelligence Network has published 2013 Healthcare Benchmarks: Care Transitions Management, its third annual analysis of care transition management.

This 50-page report is based on responses from 86 healthcare companies to HIN's third e-survey on Managing Care Transitions conducted in April 2013.

This third comprehensive collection of data points presents actionable new data on key transitions addressed, targeted health conditions and populations, care transition models in use, program components, responsibility for care transition coordination, transition team training, challenges, results, ROI, and much, much more. The data are supplemented with more than 50 easy-to-follow graphs and tables.

This report, now in its third year, continues to deliver data on the following:
  • The prevalence of existing and planned care transition management programs;
  • Top three care transitions addressed by responding organizations;
  • Sector-specific feedback on care transition efforts by hospitals and health plans;
  • Top tasks that take place during home visits, as well as the key conductors, frequency, duration and impact of home visits;

This annual industry snapshot is once again enhanced by advice from industry thought leaders on the management of care transitions, including tips from Cullman Regional Medical Center's award-winning hospital discharge program.

This all-new third edition is designed to meet business and planning needs of hospital, health plans, case managers, physician practices and others by providing critical benchmarks that demonstrate the impact of care transition management on key healthcare quality and cost indicators.

2013 Healthcare Benchmarks: Care Transitions Management is an essential support resource for any organization wishing to improve the overall patient experience while hitting critical quality improvement metrics of reducing avoidable readmissions.
