|"The greatest opportunities for improving care transitions center around improving
communication, building cross-setting relationships, and redesigning our workflow."
~ Eric A. Coleman, MD, MPH
With support from The Commonwealth Fund, The Robert Wood Johnson
Foundation, and the Paul Beeson Faculty Scholars in Aging, Dr. Coleman and colleagues
designed a 15-item uni-dimensional measure, the Care Transitions Measure (CTM®),
to assess the quality of care transitions. The primary objective of this endeavor has been to develop
a measure that is both substantively and methodologically consistent with the concept of patient-centeredness,
and useful for the purpose of performance measurement and subsequent public reporting.
