What to Expect From Transitional Care

Medical Care

Transitional Care medical providers will help patients manage and understand their health conditions and medications. They will educate and empower patients to manage their health care needs effectively and teach them how to navigate future health concerns. During this transition, we will help patients take care of themselves and, when ready, identify a primary care provider for long-term medical care.

Psychological and Social Services

Transitional Care social workers will help patients create a plan to take care of their medical and non-medical needs. Therapists and psychiatrists provide additional support as patients adjust to changes in their health and empower improved well-being.

Case Management

Transitional Care health advocates will help support patients with non-medical needs including:

  • Understanding and/or applying for health insurance
  • Connecting with social service agencies and community resources such as park district exercise options, food pantries, transportation services, and housing advocacy
  • Coordinating future appointments for testing and specialty services
  • Helping patients choose a primary care provider (PCP)

Pharmacy Services

Transitional Care pharmacy staff will help support patients with their medication needs including:

  • Understanding what medications they are taking and why
  • Applying for prescription assistance programs
