Ongoing Care

Ongoing Care is the sixth element in the Six Core Elements of Health Care Transition™ (HCT). This includes coordinating transfer to adult subspecialists as needed, assessing consumer experience with HCT support, and providing ongoing care management. To evaluate the success of the HCT process and the youth/young adult's experience with care, having a mechanism to obtain and incorporate their feedback will improve the practice's approach to transitioning to an adult approach to care.
