Continuity of care is very important. Several studies and research have shown that patients who receive continuity of care have better health care outcomes, the health care they receive is more cost effective, and they have higher satisfaction rates. Nurses and other health professionals are always looking for better ways to improve Transitional of care due to the fact that the transitions do not always go as smoothly. According to the Joint commission, “Ineffective care transition processes lead to adverse events and higher hospital readmission rates and costs” (2019). in order to reduce readmissions along with the adverse events associated with it, Hospitals will have to improve the effectiveness of transition of care in which they play a role.

It is important to know that these root causes is usually different from one health organization to another.
