Improving Care Coordination
When there is effective communication and coordination between hospitals and other care settings, the patient wins. Improving transitions of care and care coordination benefits the patient’s overall health, improves medication safety and decreases the incidence of adverse drug events.
Mountain-Pacific Quality Health works with health care communities to improve care transitions and reduce the number of unnecessary hospital admissions and readmissions. The most common reasons patients unnecessarily end up back in the hospital within 30 days of discharge are from lack of
- accurate and timely transfer of information,
- medication reconciliation,
- reliable follow-up care,
- patient engagement and self-management skills,
- use of available community resources.
We bring together providers, practitioners, partners, health care stakeholders, patients and their families to participate in community-wide collaboration to improve care and save health care dollars.
