The NTOCC Advisors Council consists of over 30 organizations representing industry professionals, patients, caregivers, thought leaders, policy makers and regulators. NTOCC invited each of these organizations to guide the coalition's work by discussing problems associated with Transitions of Care, crafting solutions and providing tools and resources to improve transitional challenges. Since 2006, this group has worked together to create significant tools and resources that all participants in health care — patients, care givers, employers, professionals and policy makers — can use to improve patient safety and decrease errors associated with poor transitions.
The Advisors Council meets regularly to continue their dialogue and develop mechanisms for advancing patient safety through consensus. They advise the NTOCC Board of Directors on critical initiatives and ensure effective communication of NTOCC resources through their combined networks reaching over 11,000 employers, 200,000 health care professionals and three million consumers. Working with the NTOCC Partners Council, they design, develop and implement solutions which improve Transitions of Care throughout the health care system.
