Date:4/17/2008

CHICAGO, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- National Transitions of Care Coalition (NTOCC) Advisory Task Force today authorized the release of recently developed tools for helping healthcare professionals and organizations address problems inherent in transitioning patients from one level of care to another. The tools represent the culmination of several months of collaboration between 29 industry stakeholders who joined together in 2006 to address challenges associated with transitions of care. In addition, NTOCC is also releasing accompanying information on how to implement and measure the tools as well as material designed to raise industry, policy maker, media and the general public's awareness of transitions of care. The material will be made available on NTOCC's website (http://www.NTOCC.org) at the end of April. NTOCC is chaired and coordinated by the Case Management Society of America (CMSA) in partnership with sanofi-aventis U.S. LLC.

"The amount of work this group has accomplished in just 18 months is impressive," Cheri Lattimer, NTOCC Project Director and CMSA Executive Director said. "For a group this large, representing such various points of view within healthcare, to come together and not only agree that transitions of care is a serious problem but also design, develop and launch tools to impact this issue is a fantastic accomplishment."

Included with the launch of the tools is a "Case Study Implementation and Evaluation Plan" on how healthcare providers can implement them within their clinical environments as well as a process for evaluating and measuring their effectiveness. "Providers can use the tools and process to start making changes in how transitions occur within their facilities," H.
