Patient Safety & Quality Category: Transitions of Care: Partnership Between Hospitals and Primary Care Physicians
The New York Chapter, working with its Hospitalist Task Force, developed a white paper on the transition of care between hospital based physicians/hospitalists and primary care physicians/community based PCPs. The intent was to assist healthcare communities and institutions with the development of local processes to improve the quality of patient care, reduce hospital readmissions, and to clarify the expectations for communication between hospitalists and community based primary care physicians.
