PURPOSE: Health systems are faced with the daunting task of adapting and implementing a large array of transitional care interventions designed to ensure the coordination and continuity of care as patients transfer between different locations and levels of care. The purpose of this study, based within one medical center of a large integrated health system with a robust electronic medical record, was to describe lessons learned from a two-year, performance improvement project that aimed to optimize care for patients admitted with a COPD exacerbation.
