The American Medical Association has released five patient safety principles for transitioning patients from inpatient to outpatient care. "Patients leaving the hospital too often return to ambulatory care settings that are not well connected to the hospital team and this can result in inefficient, confusing and sometimes unsafe conditions," the report's authors wrote. Evaluating patient heath, supporting self-management and medication management, as well as goal-setting were among the responsibilities outlined in the report.
