These are standardizing the process (in part by mapping what you do now and understanding how the current system works–or does not); activating and mobilizing patients and caregivers to take charge of the transition, to know what is going on, what to expect and how to recognize when things are falling apart; and ensuring good information flow among all settings and with patients and caregivers.
