Discharge from the Emergency Department:  Transition to Nowhere?

Manish Shah, MD, MPH, Professor, Dept. of Emergency Medicine, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine & Public Health

Improving ED-to-home care transitions has been promoted as a strategy to prevent revisits and improve health and cost outcomes for older ED patients. Suboptimal transitions result in poor continuity of care, fragmentation of services, and increased costs. We will discuss the efforts to improve this transition, with particular focus on a recent series of studies testing the Care Transitions Intervention for the ED-to-home transition.
