Management of patient handoffs—between providers, from hospital to home or skilled nursing facility, or SNF to hospital—is a key factor in the delivery of value-based care. Poorly managed care transitions drive avoidable readmissions, ER use, medication errors and healthcare spend.

2015 Healthcare Benchmarks: Care Transitions Management, HIN's fourth annual analysis of these cross-continuum initiatives, examines programs, models, protocols and results associated with movement of patients from one care site to another, including the impact of care transitions management on quality metrics and the delivery of value-based care.

With a special focus on the patient discharge process and follow-up, this 50-page report is based on responses from 116 healthcare companies to HIN's fourth e-survey on Managing Care Transitions conducted in February 2015.

New in the 2015 edition:

  • Comparison of care transitions management trends from 2010 to present;
  • Availability of dedicated post-discharge clinics;
  • Transmission modes for information on patients discharged or transitioned;
  • Details on discharge summaries;
  • Partnerships and collaborations helping to shore up care transitions, in respondents' own words; and
  • Successful workflows, protocols and tools identified by respondents.

This fourth comprehensive collection of data points presents actionable new metrics on care transitions management, including the following:

  • The prevalence of existing and planned care transitions management programs;
  • Most critical care transitions managed by responding organizations;
  • Preferred care transitions models;
  • Targeted conditions and risk factors;
  • Methods to identify participants for care transitions management;
  • Responsibility for care transitions coordination;
  • Tools and training for the care transitions team;
  • Key measurements to gauge program success;
  • Sector-specific feedback on care transitions efforts by hospitals and other high-responding sectors;
  • Program challenges, impacts and ROI;
  • The complete 2015 Managing Care Transitions survey tool;
and much more.

This annual industry snapshot is supplemented with more than 50 easy-to-follow graphs and tables as well as insight from industry thought leaders on the management of care transitions, including feedback from a Care Transitions Task Force at San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH) that developed a multi-disciplinarian, cross-continuum approach to improving care transitions.

This all-new fourth edition of 2015 Healthcare Benchmarks: Care Transitions Management 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.
