Increase Continuation between Levels of Care

These promising practices help increase continuation between levels of care—i.e., between detox and residential treatment, etc. Transitions are referrals from previous levels of care. Increased transitions become increased admissions to the next level of care.


How will we rapidly know a change promotes effective transitions and increases continuation to the next level of care?


The percent of referred clients who are admitted to the next level of care will increase. Use the Referred Clients Admitted Tracking Form Add to portal for transition clients to track your baseline and rapid-cycle change data.
