The Nurse Leader’s Role in Care Coordination and Transition Management
Health care changes over the past few years have challenged the health care system to find ways to manage the complex health needs of individuals and the population by increasing access to care and managing costs while providing the highest quality of care. Safe, efficient, and effective transitions between providers, levels of care, and various care settings will be key factors for success. Since nurses possess the knowledge and skills to provide the needed care and services, the role of the nurse leader is to advocate the value of nursing in care coordination and transition management.
