Transitions of Care
Webinar: Substance Use Disorder Case Management and Care Coordination
October 21, 2019, 11:30am-12:30pm
The goal of the Transitions of Care project is to strengthen the addiction treatment eco-systems in California counties and to decrease gaps in coordination of patient transitions moving between higher and lower levels of care.
Additionally, the HMA team will support the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and the Federal Receiver with strategic planning and piloting of plans to treat and transition incarcerated patients in and out of prison with continuity of care.
