“Transitional Care, from Crisis to Opportunity. A patient centered approach to identify, include, and address psyosocial issues and medical needs in clinical practice”

In this webinar, Dr. Schaeffer and Megan McVane discuss Northwestern Medicine’s Transitional Care and explain how the program has operationalized and grown since its creation 6 years ago. They highlight how the Transitional Care team identifies social determinants of health, and how this information is used to create a successful care plan which addresses modifiable social determinants of health and acute/chronic medical needs, benefiting both patients and NM staff. Lastly Dr. Schaeffer and Megan provide a case review to demonstrate the success of this program.
