Continuity of Care Transfer Project

Best Practice Guide to Action – Continuity of Care Transfer Project – Strategies & Tools to Improve the Transfer Process


The Best Practice Guide to Action presents an overview of a transfer process developed by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Long-Term Care Best Practice Coalition in collaboration with hospitals and long-term care centers to improve continuity of care. This collaborative resulted in the determination of the essential information needed to be communicated and the development of a process and tools to improve hand-off communication when transfers occur between hospitals and LTC centers.

The guide presents an overview of the recommended process, as well as a summary of the benefits health care facilities can receive by implementing this process.
