Transitions of Care (TOC) Measures in the Stage 2 Summary of Care Objective

The Summary of Care Objective changed from a Menu Objective in Meaningful Use Stage 1 to a Core Objective in Meaningful Use Stage 2. It still includes three transitions of care (TOC) measures for providers that transition or refer patients to another provider or setting of care. This document provides an overview of those measures and options for achieving them for eligible providers (EP), eligible hospitals (EH), and critical access hospitals (CAH).
