Transitional Care Management

 

 

Transitional Care Management (TCM) is a program that provides services for individuals who need help during transitions in care from an inpatient setting (including acute hospital, rehabilitation hospital, long-term acute care hospital or skilled nursing facility) to the patient’s home.

 

How does the program work?

A Transitional Care Specialist will visit you at the hospital or at home to explain the benefits of the program. Then a home nurse visit will be set up to evaluate your needs.

The Program can help you:

  • Stay safe and stable at home to avoid unnecessary visits to the hospital

  • Set goals or your health

  • Prepare for your routine visit to your primary care doctor

  • Answer questions and concerns you may have regarding your condition

  • Learn about your symptoms and how to treat them
