Collaborative accountability for care transitions: the community care of North Carolina transitions program

N C Med J. Jan-Feb 2012;73(1):34-40.

Abstract

Community Care of North Carolina initiated efforts to improve care transitions for North Carolina Medicaid recipients in 2008. The transitions program is now statewide, serving more than 4,000 patients every month, virtually every North Carolina hospital, and more than 1,400 primary care practices. This commentary describes program components, early outcomes, and future challenges.
