Abstract

This column discusses the establishment of a multidisciplinary model for care transition of COVID-19-positive patients from hospital to community. The pandemic has presented challenging issues for discharge transition. A tiered patient identification and clinical messaging referral system was developed. The use of the COVID-19 transition model provided support to patients and physicians during the 30-day discharge period and can serve as a model for emerging public health issues in the future.
