The use of interdisciplinary teams is not new to health care industries, it has gained increasing favor in the environment of health care reform as evidenced by governmental recommendations and guidelines (U S Bureau of Health Professions, 1995) and position statements from professional organizations (American Association of Colleges of Nursing, 1995). The trend in nursing is to collaborate with other health care disciplines as well as with clients. Use of interdisciplinary health care (IHC) teams can facilitate the emergence of holistic client care goals from teams of diverse health care specialists. Upheaval in the health care industry is affecting all health professions. In the movement for health care reform, emphasis is being placed on such things as the need for health promotion, coordinated care, and reduction in cost. Some of the watchwords are “prevention”, “wellness” and “healthy lifestyles’ (Memmott, Marett, Bott, & Duke, 2000).
“Coordination is broadly defined as the “management of interdependencies among tasks. Coordination is the key to a functional organization, and higher levels of coordination lead to higher quality outcomes” (Yang & Meiners, 2014).
“Models of transitional care are currently being tested. Hospitals are being penalized financially for readmission of Medicare patients within 30 days of discharge. Nurses can help decrease the number of unnecessary readmissions and post discharge complications. They can help patients navigate through the many obstacles of health care systems as they move back and forth between primary care and specialty care providers and as they move between inpatient and outpatient care settings. Coordination and continuity of care are critical components of transitional care. Transitional care nurses use current information about a patient’s acute and chronic conditions, goals, preferences, and clinical status to develop a comprehensive plan of care for patients that involves all providers of care regardless of the care setting. Perioperative nurses’ unique knowledge and understanding of the many factors necessary to ensure a smooth and seamless ﬂow through each phase of perioperative services would be an asset to any transition-of-care team” (Kunic & Jackson, 2013).
