CMS will host National Care Transitions Awareness Day on April 16 and has invited HIINs to contribute to this effort through facilitating care transitions activities throughout the week of April 15-19. HRET HIIN will partner with AHA’s Population Health Team to share HRET HIIN hospital success stories from the Huddle for Care initiative through the HRET HIIN LISTSERV and on Twitter. HRET HIIN also plans to host a webinar during this week focused on empowering patients and caregivers to take an active role in co-creating their care transitions plans. More details to come on this event.

During the week of April 15, hospitals can join the conversation and share successes on Twitter using the #CMSNCTA19 hashtag. To receive future communications from CMS about upcoming care transitions activities, join the CMS Care Transitions LISTSERV here.

Additionally, HRET HIIN is partnering with the University of Kentucky Center for Health Services Research to collect data for their Project ACHIEVE grant, funded by the Patient Centered Outcome Research Institute (PCORI). This study is focused on evaluating current care transitions efforts across the country, improving care transitions practices, and developing recommendations on best practices for patient-centered care transitions. Please encourage your hospitals to contribute to this research by completing this brief survey. For more information, contact Jordan Steiger.
