National Care Transitions Awareness Day

Diverse Business Group Young Female Doctor

Thank You for Participating in National Care Transitions Awareness (NCTA) Day: April 16, 2019

Organizations continue to do their part to reduce avoidable hospital readmissions throughout the year. You can still take advantage of the readmission tools and videos offered below.

Coordincta_logo.pngnation of care during care transitions plays a critical role in determining the quality of care patients receive; and reducing preventable 30-day hospital readmissions is a priority for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). To increase awareness of the importance and value of safe and effective care transitions and coordination, CMS designated April 16, 2019, as the first NCTA Day. 

Best-practice strategies to improve care transitions include information sharing process, data sharing and transparency, person and family engagement, and risk stratification. HSAG has put together an educational webinar, videos, tools, and other resources—available below—to help your organization improve its care transitions.
