Implementation of a Workflow Initiative for Integrating Transitional Care Management Codes in a Geriatric Primary Care Practice
We implemented a transitional care management service led by a nurse care manager. An interdisciplinary team developed a workflow using a Plan-Do-Study-Act cycle for contacting patients. Of the 146 (97.9%) eligible patients, 143 (97.9%) had a phone call within 48 hours. There were 84 of 120 (70.0%) and 117 of 120 (97.5%) attendance rates of those attending visits within 7 and 14 days. A care manager–led workflow was successfully and easily implemented within a primary care practice.
