Assistant Professor Sharon Hewner and nursing PhD student Suzanne Sullivan appeared in “eGems” for their work “Integrating Social Determinants of Health into Primary Care Clinical and Informational Workflow During Care Transitions.”
The article describes coordinating transitions for chronically ill patients discharged from acute care settings to improve communication between providers and across settings for improved patient outcomes. The intervention delivers alerts directly to primary care providers to facilitate nurse care coordinator outreach and prioritize patient follow-up.
