New Transitions: Improving Adherence During Care Transitions
Presented by: Dr. Eric A. Coleman
Dr. Eric Coleman is an international leader in geriatric and chronic disease care whose work focuses on a problem in American health care that has been largely ignored: the many challenges that occur as patients transition from hospitals to post-acute care and to home. Working closely with patients and families, health care providers, and policymakers, Dr. Coleman is addressing system-wide deficiencies that too often result in subsequent poor patient outcomes and avoidable health care costs. Dr. Coleman was recognized with a MacArthur Fellowship “Genius Grant” for his work in bridging innovation and practice through enhancing the role of patients and family caregivers in improving the quality of their care transitions. Dr. Coleman serves as the Director of the National Care Transitions Program.
