The Administration on Aging (AoA) recently announced release of an online toolkit, “Care Transitions Toolkit”, which targets organizations interested in learning more about how to play a role in programs to improve care transitions. According to AoA, the toolkit can help organizations “in formalizing your efforts for future funding and program efforts.”
Information in the toolkit is based on lessons learned from states that received funding from the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) Program, ADRC Evidence-based Care Transitions Program, Person-Centered Hospital Discharge Model, Community Living Program, and the Veteran Directed Home and Community Based Services Program. Toolkit topic areas include how to get started, how to plan, how to develop effective partnerships with health care providers, and how to measure for success.
