THE EFFECT OF SHARED ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS ON DUPLICATE IMAGING AFTER INTERHOSPITAL TRANSFERS

Background: When patients are transferred between hospitals (interhospital transfer, IHT), incomplete information exchange between electronic health records (EHRs) poses a barrier to continuity of care. As a result, diagnostic tests may be repeated after transfer, [...]

IDENTIFYING RACIAL/ETHNIC DISPARITIES IN INTERHOSPITAL TRANSFER

Background: Racial/ethnocultural inequities have been demonstrated throughout our health care system, though their presence among patients who undergo interhospital transfer (IHT), commonly done to provide patients with more specialized care, is poorly understood. The goals [...]

UNDERSTANDING AND IMPROVING THE INTERHOSPITAL TRANSFER TRIAGE PROCESS

Background: Interhospital transfer is a necessary part of patient care in an increasingly complex healthcare environment. However, it is an ill-defined process that has been associated with increased mortality, cost, and length of stay, even [...]

IMPLEMENTING ACCEPT NOTE TEMPLATES TO IMPROVE COMMUNICATION DURING INTERHOSPITAL TRANSFERS

Background: Poor communication among providers is a barrier to seamless transitions in patient care. This problem is compounded when patients undergo interhospital transfer (IHT), where complex patients are transferred between providers, settings and healthcare systems. [...]

IMPROVING ADVANCED NOTIFICATION OF IMPENDING INTERHOSPITAL TRANSFERS

Background: Sub-optimal communication during care transitions contributes to poor patient outcomes. Patients who undergo interhospital transfer (IHT, the transfer of patients between hospitals) are at especially high risk given their level of illness severity. In [...]

IMPROVING PATIENT SAFETY OUTCOMES AMONG PATIENTS TRANSFERRED FROM AN OUTSIDE FACILITY: A QUALITY IMPROVEMENT PROJECT

Background: Advances in technology and life-sustaining interventions afford patients access to a wider network of subspecialized care through inter-facility transfers. Implicit in these transfers are multiple complex steps that leave patients vulnerable to adverse events. [...]

National Evaluation of Interhospital Transfers

Background: Care transitions expose hospitalized patients to risks of discontinuity of care. Although various forms of care transitions have been widely studied, little is known about inter-hospital transfers (IHT, the transfer of patients between acute [...]
