Care Transitions – Project 2.b.i.v

Overview

To provide a 30-day supported transition period after a hospitalization to ensure discharge directions are understood and implemented by the patients who are at a higher risk of readmission. Many factors impact a patient’s successful transition and can include health literacy, language issues, and lack of engagement with the community health care system as well as social determinants to health. These factors can be addressed by a Health Coach who will meet with the patient in the hospital and do a home visit along with three follow-up phone calls to assess and address any barriers during the post 30-day timeframe.

Care Compass Network’s Goals

  • To work with Medicaid members that are not eligible for Health Home or professional home care and provide them with a Health Coach to help prevent avoidable readmissions.
  • Incorporate a Health Coach to improve the transition from a hospital to the home.
  • To build confidence in the patient and their caregiver and to become comfortable with managing their care after a hospital discharge through the help of a Health Coach.

Who is Eligible to Participate in the Project?

Any inpatient Hospital unit or Community-based Organization who provide Health Coach services to Medicaid members.
