Transition Healthcare Professionals
It is important for health care providers and other professionals caring for youth/young adults and their families to establish health care transition processes from pediatric to adult care, for youth with and without special health care needs. Whether you have a pediatric, family, or adult practice/clinic, there are tools available to assist your preparation for the health care transition process.
Got Transition, the national guidance on health care transition policy, suggests using:
- The Six Core Elements of Health Care Transition as a roadmap,
- The Coding and Payment Tip Sheet for Transition from Pediatric to Adult Care, and
- Health Care Transition timeline for a successful process.
How Well is Your Practice Implementing Health Care Transition?
The Six Core Elements can guide physicians through the STEPS of transition.
Six Core Elements can be altered and used by Other Professionals (school nurses, educational transition specialists, case managers, etc.) who work with youth/young adults and their families within the transition age group to achieve similar goals and outcomes.
Take the full assessment to assess your practice's health care transition progress.
