Posted on 4/17/2008 by NTOCC ® in Press Releases

Little Rock, Ark. (April 24, 2008) — The National Transitions of Care Coalition (NTOCC) Advisory Task Force has authorized the release of recently developed tools for helping healthcare professionals and organizations address problems inherent in transitioning patients from one level of care to another. The tools represent the culmination of several months of collaboration between 29 industry stakeholders who joined together in 2006 to address challenges associated with transitions of care. In addition, NTOCC is also releasing accompanying information on how to implement and measure the tools, as well as material designed to raise industry, policy maker, media, and the general public's awareness of transitions of care. The material will be made available on NTOCC's website (www.ntocc.org/) at the end of April. NTOCC is chaired and coordinated by the Case Management Society of America (CMSA) in partnership with sanofi-aventis U.S. LLC.
