PCORI launched the Transitional Care Evidence to Action Network (TC-E2AN) in 2015 to support and connect PCORI-funded research teams studying transitional care. The network seeks to facilitate collaboration and share lessons learned about conducting patient-centered research in transitional care.

The 30 projects currently composing the TC-E2AN are comparing which approaches work best to reduce readmissions and improve patient experience and a wide range of outcomes important to patients and other healthcare stakeholders. The overarching goal of the network is to cultivate a body of evidence on transitional care that is actionable and relevant to patients, families, clinicians, healthcare delivery systems, and payers.

The network includes projects funded under the following PCORI National Priorities for Research:

  • Improving Healthcare Systems
  • Addressing Disparities
  • Accelerating Patient-Centered Outcomes Research and Methodological Research
  • Assessment of Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment Options

These projects are located across 16 states and the District of Columbia.

Using webinars, in-person meetings, collaborative projects, and other approaches, TC-E2AN is designed to:

  • Facilitate engagement and collaboration among PCORI awardees studying transitional care to enhance work in progress and assure that work is relevant to key stakeholders and end users.
  • Engage awardee teams and facilitate cross-learning between them.
  • Link awardees with end users to enhance relevance of evidence and increase the likelihood of uptake of findings.
