Quick Question: What are the most significant challenge to successful care transitions?
posted 02.04.2013

Last week we asked you what you see as the most significant challenge to successful care transitions. Here's what you said:

  • 48% of those responding said that communications between systems, communication between care providers and families, access to home health care, medications, and care coordination where significant challenges to successful care transitions.
  • 32% said that communication between systems was the most significant challenge. 
  • 24% said that communication between care providers and families was the most significant challenge. 

The Winter 2012-13 issue of Generations, “Care Transitions in an Aging America,” takes readers deep into the current landscape of care transitions in our nation. What exactly are care transitions? And why are they considered so problematic—and even a peril to human life? Under the guidance of Guest Editors Robyn Golden and Gayle Shier, this issue of Generations traverses the tough path toward a system of improved and more person-centered care.

ASA Members receive a printed copy of Generations by mail and have access to the issue online. Select articles from this issue are also available on AgeBlog.
