Despite an intense policy focus on preventing readmissions and adverse events after hospital discharge, this systematic review found only limited evidence to support the use of relatively high-intensity approaches to improving transitional care. This AHRQ-funded study was published as part of a special patient safety supplement in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
