TCM - The Beginners Guide to Transitional Care Management

TCM Overview

Transitional care management (TCM) encompasses a broad range of services designed to ensure health care continuity, avoid preventable poor outcomes and promote the safe transfer of patients from one level of care to another, or from one type of setting to another. It is a critically important and growing area of health care management, most notably among highly vulnerable, chronically ill patients (Naylor, Aiken, Kurtzman, Olds & Hirschman, 2011).
