Telephone Call From Acute Care Physicians to Long Term Care Physicians: Impact on Transitional Care of Elderly Patients

2014-07-23 21:46:25 | BioPortfolio

Summary

A telephone call from a physician taking care of a patient in the hospital to a physician in the long term care setting at the time of discharge can improve transitional care for elderly patients. We believe direct communication between physicians can reduce re-hospitalizations, medication errors, morbidity and mortality. No studies have been done that involve physician-to-physician sign-outs after hospital discharge to the nursing home. In our study, we would like to address the breakdown in the transfer of information to the nursing home setting.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A facility set up for the purpose of handling large volumes of telephone calls. Call Centers typically utilize some form of computer automation for receiving, dispatching, screening, logging and forwarding telephone calls.

Abnormal structures located chiefly in distal dendrites and, along with NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES and SENILE PLAQUES, constitute the three morphological hallmarks of ALZHEIMER DISEASE. Neuropil threads are made up of straight and paired helical filaments which consist of abnormally phosphorylated microtubule-associated tau proteins. It has been suggested that the threads have a major role in the cognitive impairment seen in Alzheimer disease.

Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent or treat ALZHEIMER DISEASE.

Analog or digital communications device in which the user has a wireless connection from a telephone to a nearby transmitter. It is termed cellular because the service area is divided into multiple "cells." As the user moves from one cell area to another, the call is transferred to the local transmitter.
