Coronavirus Update:What patients and families need to know
Improving Hospital-to-Home Transition for Children
Kavita Parikh, M.D., MSHS, and her team are funded by a career development award from the Agency of Health Research and Quality. She is piloting a community-based hospital-to-home transition plan for patients and their caregivers after a hospitalization for an asthma exacerbation. A patient-centered transition plan is being developed from qualitative interviews with stakeholders, including caregivers, asthma educators, primary care physicians, hospitalists, pulmonologists, school nurses and payers. The program will be piloted by enrolling children during a hospitalization for an asthma exacerbation and following them outpatient.
