Cross-continuum Care Continuity: Achieving Seamless Care and Managing Comorbidities
As healthcare systems continue to design care models responsive to payment changes and the assumption of clinical and financial risk, the need exists for a comprehensive approach to address cross-continuum care transitions. This article will highlight key learnings from the Nurse Executive Center’s research on achieving care continuity. The business case for developing a cross-continuum care transition strategy will be discussed, as well as systemic enablers for the achievement of seamless care. A case study example of 1 system’s solution for supporting the multiple comorbid patient population as part of its cross-continuum care transition strategy will be examined.
