Transitioning Patients with Heart Failure to Outpatient Care

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

The transition from hospitalization to outpatient care is a vulnerable time for patients with heart failure. This requires specific focus on the transitional care period. Here the authors propose a framework to guide process improvement in the transitional care period. The authors extend this framework by (1) examining the role new technology might play in transitional care, and (2) offering practical advice for teams building transitional care programs.
