Description

This study examines the transition of care of adults with IDD from the hospital to the appropriate outpatient facility. It specifically evaluates if any factors (e.g., demographics, housing situation, level of disability, etc.) that predict the time it takes for an individual to follow up with the appropriate outpatient provider and whether or not the discharge summary was available to effectively inform the provider of the hospitalization course.
