The National Transitions of Care Coalition (NTOCC), an organization dedicated to improving patient transitions throughout the healthcare system, is proud to announce the addition of a new member to its Partners Council. Global Transitional Care is a healthcare service company that provides short-term care services to patients transitioning from hospital, or in-patient care facility, to home.
“NTOCC is thrilled to welcome Global Transitional Care as the newest member of our rapidly growing industry Partners Council,” said NTOCC Executive Director, Cheri Lattimer. “GTC’s dedicated focus on innovative services that specifically improve transitional care from the hospital/inpatient facility to home, and help ensuring seamless post-discharge care for patients/caregivers and the entire healthcare team, provides a natural alignment with NTOCC’s overarching mission of improving patient transitions and outcomes. The GTC leadership team also brings a diversity of experience from across the healthcare industry, and a critical understanding of the importance of continuity of care at one of the most problematic transition points in a patient’s journey through the health care delivery system.”
“NTOCC is very excited to partner with Global Transitional Care as we continue to expand the reach and dimension of our valued industry partners team, which supports the NTOCC mission in so many ways – including thought leadership and the creation and delivery of innovative tools, resources, and information that assist the entire NTOCC community in improving transitions of care for patients, caregivers, and health care providers of all kinds,” Lattimer added.
