Transition Care refers to the continuity of health care of patients during their movement from a hospital to their homes.
In the current healthcare scenario in India, a patient requiring services like critical care or post-operative care has broadly two options; either to be admitted in a hospital or to set up a hospital-like facility at home.
Providing the above services for a patient in a hospital can prove to be an expensive affair. On the other hand, keeping the patient at home requires critical care equipment, skilled medical professionals and trained helpers. Adding to this is the increase in the chances of infection, lack of immediate assistance coupled with emotional and physical stress for the family.
This is where a transition care center can act as a perfect solution making sure that the patient goes back home fully recovered.
