Transitions of Care (TOC) is an important topic for the transformation of health care. It is the movement of a patient from one care setting to another involving a set of proactive actions. Many patients leave the hospital, rehabilitation facility or long-term care setting often in a vulnerable state with little understanding of what comes next.
As part of Highmark's Population Health University, we held a panel discussion to highlight why effective transitions in care are important and discuss collaborative efforts to support care coordination. We also discussed how improvements to patient care have a positive effect on the patient, physician experience and readmission rates.
Highmark and our Population Health University team are happy to announce that you can now earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits for completing the Transitions of Care module either in part or in whole.
All CME credits are obtained through the Allegheny Health Network (AHN) CME platform. To earn CME credits, you must register for an account here . Once an account is created you will not need to re-register in the future for Highmark/AHN CME offerings.
You will be eligible to receive partial CME credit for the individual components of the module that you complete, or full credit for completing the entire module. You are only able to apply for CMEs for the Transitions of Care Module one time, so ensure you complete all components you want credit for prior to submitting CME credit.
