3 Smooth Communications – Transitions in Care Discussion Questions 1.What happens when the patient does not have a primary care provider? Do we need a separate flow diagram and agreed upon expectations for who does what and when in this situation which is fairly common? How will this change the expectations regarding appointments and the timing of follow-up? 2.Do we need specific, agreed-upon criteria that will guide the clinical triage of patients at the time of discharge? Or, is it okay to leave this to the clinical judgment of the discharging provider? 3.What strategies are likely to be most effective in building accountability and responsiveness among community physicians for their proactive participation in the patient hand-off’s? What are the barriers for community physicians and how can we overcome them most effectively? What do community physicians need to be most effective? 4.Are hospitals/emergency departments organized and resourced in the most effective way to effectively facilitate the hand-off’s and provide information? What do hospitals/emergency departments need to be most effective?
