Care Transitions

Preparing for a 2016 launch, the goal of the Integrated Michigan Patient-centered Alliance on Care Transitions (I-MPACT) is to reduce hospital re-admissions and improve post-discharge care coordination.  The initiative is a partnership of hospitals, physician organizations, other post-acute care providers and community organizations.

Participants collect and share data to identify best practices that will improve patient care before, during and after transition from the hospital setting.

Results

This is a new CQI. Due to the type of data collected, as well as factors such as length of treatment, timing rules, and tracking of patient outcomes, it takes time for the dataset to mature and become robust enough to allow analysis and produce results.
