EDTC Cohort Office Hour Series

Critical access hospitals (CAHs) play a crucial role in stabilizing and transferring patients in emergency situations. Improving emergency transitions of care is a key component of increasing the quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of health care services. The Emergency Department Transfer Communication (EDTC) measure allows CAHs to evaluate and improve upon the effectiveness of this vitally important role. Effective transfer of patient information from the emergency department to the next site of care fosters patient care continuity and helps reduce errors, improve outcomes, and increase patient and family satisfaction.  Join us in a six part series to learn more about the EDTC Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP) measures and meet the goal of 100% for each measure for your CAHs.


Funding for this series was provided by the Health Resources Services Administration, Rural Hospital Flexibility Program (Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) 93.241).
