Patient safety outcomes after two years of an enhanced internal medicine residency clinic handoff.

Pincavage AT, Prochaska M, Dahlstrom M, et al. The American Journal of Medicine. 2013;127.

This pre–post study of a standardized handoff intervention in an internal medicine resident continuity clinic resulted in fewer patients lost to follow-up and decreased acute care utilization around the time of provider handoff. The authors conclude that identifying and prioritizing follow-up for high-risk patients improves year-end handoffs for graduating residents.
