The Transitional Care Model (TCM) provides comprehensive in-hospital planning and home follow-up for chronically ill high-risk older adults hospitalized for common medical and surgical conditions.

For the millions of Americans who suffer from multiple chronic conditions and complex therapeutic regimens, TCM emphasizes coordination and continuity of care, prevention and avoidance of complications, and close clinical treatment and management - all accomplished with the active engagement of patients and their family and informal caregivers and in collaboration with the patient's physicians.
