The North Carolina Alliance for Effective Care Transitions (NC ACT) is a gathering of stakeholders representing hospitals, long term care, assisted living, home health, hospice, palliative care, mental health, case management, insurance plans, community care networks, interfaith communities, senior services, patients and others meeting to coordinate efforts improving care transitions across all settings for all North Carolinians. Collectively NC ACT strives to combine resources and disseminate best practices to ensure North Carolinians are provided effective, person-centered, and optimal transitions of care.
NC ACT Mission, Vision, Goals
Our mission is to have stakeholders connect care transitions services and resources, identify best practices and needs, and educate the public, providers and decision makers on person-centered quality services and supports for optimal healthcare transitions.
Person centered quality services and supports when North Carolinians transition from one healthcare setting to another.
- Reduce re-hospitalizations by 20%
- Enhance diversion activities to increase use of community services in prevention of re-hospitalization
- Engage the patient and family in every care transition
