Improving Care Transitions for All

NTOCC provides tools and resources to patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals and policy makers who seek to address the challenges in meeting the needs of patients transitioning between care settings. Patient care during transitions is often rushed, responsibility is fragmented among multiple providers and communication suffers across care settings. These failures lead to undue burdens on patients and their families and negatively impact patient safety, quality of care, outcomes and healthcare costs. The focus of NTOCC is to bring together thought leaders and health care experts from various settings to address this critical issue, define solutions and develop tools to address the gaps impacting patient care.

Tools and resources developed by NTOCC are made available to everyone in the health care industry including providers, payers and patients. Information and resources are made available to policy makers and media members who seek a better understanding of the Transitions of Care challenge and how to address it effectively.
