A recent blog post for the New York Times highlights the important role caregivers have at discharge – the time of transition from hospital care to care at home and beyond.

In an effort to strengthen care transitions, the AHA’s Health Research and Educational Trust (HRET), through a grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, has created the Huddle for Care website.

All health care providers, from acute-care hospitals, to physician offices, to home care organizations, are encouraged to use Huddle for Care to share stories and effective tools for creating successful patient care transition plans.

By sharing best practices with one and other, health care professionals from across the care spectrum can come together to improve care and reduce the need for further treatments, therefore saving lives and precious health care resources.
