Older adults with multiple chronic conditions complicated by other risk factors, such as deficits in activities of daily living or social barriers, experience multiple challenges in managing their healthcare needs, especially during episodes of acute illness. Identifying effective strategies to improve care transitions and outcomes for this population is essential. Effective care coordination and transition management are essential to delivering patient centered, quality care. Those who provide these services must be trained and qualified to meet patients' social service and medical needs.
