LITTLE ROCK, Ark., May 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Transitions of Care Coalition (NTOCC) announced today the launch of an enhanced website at http://www.NTOCC.org. The redesigned site contains a variety of new downloadable tools and information to help address transition of care challenges and to raise awareness about transitions of care. Specific content is available for various groups including healthcare professionals, consumers (patients and their caregivers), policy makers and the media. NTOCC was founded in 2006 to address the challenges and complications created when a patient transitions from one health care setting to another. NTOCC is chaired and coordinated by the Case Management Society of America (CMSA) in partnership with sanofi-aventis U.S. LLC.

"The launch of our revamped website represents an important step in the development of NTOCC," Cheri Lattimer, NTOCC Project Director and CMSA Executive Director said. "People can now find information that addresses transitions of care from their particular perspective. Tools are available so that both professionals and consumers can help improve transitions of care."

The newly released tools and resources address several important areas that impact effective transitions including:

-- Personal Patient "My Medicine List" Essential Data Elements: This is a

list of important recommended information about a patient's

medications. The data elements indicate the prescriptions that

patients have been prescribed and are currently taking along with

information about their over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and

nutritional supplements. The goal of the personal medicine list is to

help patients improve their understanding of their current medicine
