Transitional care has been found to help improve patient's outcomes following a hospital visit. A new study by Health Affairs found that patients who recieved this care were 20% less likely to be readmitted into the hospital for the same condition within the following year. This study shows the effects that transitional care can have not only on 30 day readmission rates, but readmissions up to a year after a medical event.
