To transfer information,
such as medical history, medication lists, test results, and patient
preferences, appropriately from one participant in a patient’s care to
another. This includes transferring information to or from the patient.
To establish accountability
by clarifying who is responsible for each aspect of a patient’s overall
care. This includes specifying who is primarily responsible for key
care delivery activities, the extent of that responsibility, and when
that responsibility will be transferred to other care participants. The
accountable entity (whether a health care professional, care team, or
health care organization) accepts responsibility for failures in the
aspect(s) of care for which it is accountable. The patient or family
also at times may be the accountable entity.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
