Eric A. Coleman, MD, MPH, is an Associate Professor of Medicine within the Divisions of Health Care Policy and Research and Geriatric Medicine at the University of Colorado at Denver and Health Sciences Center. As a board-certified geriatrician, Dr. Coleman maintains direct patient care responsibility for older adults in ambulatory, acute, and subacute care settings. Dr. Coleman’s research focuses on enhancing the role of patients and caregivers in improving the quality of their care transitions across acute and post-acute settings; measuring the quality of care transitions from the perspective of patients and caregivers; implementing system-level practice improvement interventions; and using health information technology to promote safe and effective care transitions.
A TIMELY SURVEY REFLECTING SOME OF THE BEST THINKING IN THIS RAPIDLY EMERGING AREA. An informative discussion of definitions and terminology will help readers appreciate the distinctions among the many and varied approaches being tested to meet the transitions problem. Several chapters deal with special populations such as those with cognitive impairment or those who live in residential care settings. Others address predictors of failed care transitions and measurement of the quality of transitions. The textbook of care transitions cannot yet be written, but this volume PROVIDES A RICH SAMPLING OF THE CURRENT STATE OF KNOWLEDGE, including its large gaps. . . . USEFUL to case managers and discharge planners, to those interested in quality improvement and program design, and to researchers and policy analysts. -- Alan Lazaroff, MD, President, Geriatric Medicine Associates, Denver, Colorado
